Thaaaaaaaaaaat awkward moment when your out hiking and you go to take a selfie ANNNNNNNNNNNND...
YOU SEE A JAVELINA PHOTO BOMBING IN THE BACKGROUND!!!
Yeah, I kinda-sorta- you know, FREAKED OUT!!!
WHAT IS A JAVELINA???
For those of you non-Arizonans, we ususally just think of them as wild pigs...buuuuuuuuut the technical term: The collared peccary, commonly known as the javelina, is found as far south as Argentina and as far north as Texas, New Mexico, and Arizona. Collared peccaries are in the even-toed, hoofed mammal order of Artiodactyla. Javelinas are mistaken for pigs, but they are in a different family than pigs.
Look at how well they blend into the desert bushes...crazy how God did that for THEM!!! Not too awesome for me tho!!! LOL It was the coolest new trail I found to Sunrise Peak in Scottsdale, buuuuuuuuuuuut I was all alone on the trail and the kinda scared me, Javelinas don't really attack unless they are in a pack, buuuuuuuuuut who's to say they're weren't more nearby!
Anywayz, I didn't complete the hike, soooooooo it's currently on my list for the week...Javelinas or NOT....I will NOT be a sissy about it...I WILL BE BRAVE!!!
