photographing and learning about wildlife
Small, pig-like mammal with brown fur. There is a faint collar around the neck, which is how they get their name 'collared peccary'. Their fur stands up when they are frightened as you can see in the 1st photo (another javelina started chasing it)!
This herd was hanging out on a manicured lawn of a college campus at the edge of town. Not exactly the place you would expect to see these guys, but they were a bit more used to people so I was able to get decent shots finally!
