    totoro Mom? What's a GFG?

    Look at this picture! It is too cute, we get little herds of these guys running through neighborhoods. I guess they LOVE pumpkins. We have wild squash that grows here but not like a perfectly carved out Jack-o-Lantern! What could be better.
    I think they are very cute! I guess if they make camp for too long in your yard, it starts to smell...
    My inlaws get them behind the pool all the time. I love watching them. I suppose we will need to pull our pumpkins in at night?

    by the way: they are Javelina or Collared Peccary, pig like animals, but very big!!! They have tusks and run in packs. They are pretty abundant here!

    I agree with meowbunny. They look like giant rats. No offense to Cadence, in her cage next to me.
