I narrated this video, but the bottom line is that Blaze The Wonder Cat held his ground at the front door while he was nose to nose with an adult javelina. Thankfully there was a metal screen door between them! In addition, there was one javelina who had bad intentions toward at least one other javelina. Once an attack was launched on the target, all the javelina scattered in different directions!

Blaze guarding his turf! This group of javelinas seems stronger and edgier than your prior video where they circled the babies. This was early morning when it's cooler; maybe they have more energy early morning. But I would not want to get caught in the middle of this gang - at the end they really moved fast.

Very glad you have that metal security door and that Blaze was safely inside. It must have been thrilling for him to come nose to nose with that javelina!

I was actually surprised that Blaze held his ground, even with the metal screen door in place! He was really interested in the javelina. I am sure he will remember that experience for a while! Yeah, there was some dynamic going on in that group that showed up later in the video. It would be really interesting to know what the issue was, but I guess we will never know! These animals are amazingly fast and agile when they need to be. We usually see them plodding along single file and do not have an appreciation for their athletic abilities!

I saw a long line of javelinas crossing the road yesterday. Among them were 3 very tiny babies, and some more older kids. They are very protective of the young ones and put them in the middle of the line.

Always enjoy your "nature" videos.

You remind me of Marlin Perkins.

No different than us really! Where did you see them crossing? I have a video that shows a young javelina, maybe a few months old leading a pair of baby javelina, maybe 2 weeks old across the street. Initially, I thought he chickened out on crossing the street, but then I came to see that he went back to escort his new cousins across the road. This was one brave little guy! You can either watch the whole video or start at 1:27 to see the part I am talking about. I think you will enjoy it.

I'm west of the Sierritas. They were crossing a dirt road. The small ones were about the size of those two you saw. But the line here kept moving and the babies marched along behind the parents with the older "kids" following. I stopped counting them at 9. Nobody lingered. Fortunately no other traffic. Very cute
