I don't think this video needs much description! This all happened just off our front porch Just after 9 am on Sunday 10/03/2021. As I mentioned, I am not sure if the efforts were successful or not, but this is how baby javelina are made!

(Blush). Bart, maybe they should be given some privacy. I don't remember Marlon Perkins including this on Wild Kingdom.

As an aside, you'll probably be having a banner year for baby Javelinas after all your rain and more things growing to eat. They're one of the cutest baby animals!

I realize that this is a totally blushable video, but hey, they chose the spot right off my front porch, and I chose to document it. I think it is interesting how they like to chew ears with those HUGE teeth! One of my subscribers from Japan says he is looking forward to this couples babies in the Spring. The gestation period for the collared peccary is roughly 145 days, so it this mating was indeed successful, we could look forward to babies in late February or early March. The collared peccary in this area of the country does not have a defined mating season, so you can see babies at any time of the year!!!

Learned something new: 145 days. That seems amazingly short, and there probably will be lots of little baby Javelinas which means more cute videos in store for us! I didn't mean anything bad in my comment, it was just me being Miss Priss. Thank you as always for any videos you share.

How can I help but see this right out my front door? ;-) It is part of javelina behavior not commonly seen, so I felt I had to share! ;-)

The 145 day gestation period is pretty short. Add that to the fact that there is no specific mating season, and you would think that there would be huge squadrons of javelina roaming the area. Since I have lived here (the past 8 years) I have not noted an increase in population which would indicate that not all babies survive to adulthood. The average javelina lives about 10 years in the wild, so many of those I saw when we first moved here are gone now.

I never thought anything bad about your comment wildflowers27. I appreciate you watching and commenting on my videos. If some of them do not appeal to you, I can understand that. I just capture and share what I see, and this is simply something I saw, and I thought it was interesting.
