    I had never realized what amazing animals they were until I recently watched a couple shows on PBS/Nature - in particular their silent flight and hunting capabilities and adaptations.

    Look at those feet...badass owl talons!

    We saw two more this weekend. They were right above us . Not sure if they were preparing to owl howl with some mating or teaming up for some prey! They crossed trees screeching above then took off. Saw both.

    Saw a 5’ racer snake. Almost ran over it with the 4wheeler. One of the bigger ones I’ve seen.

    Nature is the shiz. If you are not getting out there you should....

    Elephant kills driver after vehicle slams into back of its legs

    A man was killed by a wild elephant in Thailand on Wednesday after his speeding car hit the animal near a national park, police said.

    The accident occurred on a small road near Khao Yai National Park. Road signs in the area warn drivers to beware of wild animals that sometimes stray from the park. Police said the man wasn't from the area.

    The driver failed to slow down when he encountered the elephant and struck the animal's back legs. The animal responded by stomping on the vehicle, crushing the engine and killing the driver.

    Two people are killed per year by the elephants in the area of the park, police Lt. Col. Kemchat Paedkaew said.

    As long as it's legal it's going to continue. There have been numerous measures to increase the size of park buffer zones to no avail. Her mother was killed by a trophy hunter also.

    02CF3197-567D-43B2-A733-B09D2B0E93CE.jpeg This guy has been wandering the neighborhood and the local trails. One day while riding I stopped to take a look at him. He stared at me and started stomping his leg. I see deer constantly but never saw one do this. It seemed aggressive. I pedaled my ass out of there.

    Yeah those bucks will charge you. They're studs for sure.

    Steer clear of moms with young-uns, particularly the babies with spotted flanks. Get too close and they'll bum rush you too.

    The deer all get stupid during the rut. Especially the bigger bucks. All they want to do is fight to establish pecking order in who gets to bang the best doe. Big bruiser bucks that you don't even know are in your area because they are nocturnal suddenly are wandering around in the middle of day; looking for that poontang. Smaller bucks gets pushed out and wander into areas not known for having deer. And just like our human females, all the doe are batshit crazy. The 8 point buck in your picture was just telling you to stay away from his bitches. If you had yelled or clapped your hands, he probably would have trotted off.
    The bear on the other hand is whole other matter. Very unpredictable. Watch your ass around them critters.

    Whether it's a pissed off buck, bear or gator all you have to do is rub their belly (if they close enough) and they immediately back off. I had a friend tell me this but unfortunately he went out in the woods and hasn't been heard from for some time now?
