New Toy

I was always excited to own a new toy when I was a kid, and I just become more clearly myself as I grow older. This explained my feeling when I managed to take a few pictures of a wild boar this morning.

The place was actually not so dark. Though cautious, I was not very much in fear while flashing repeatedly at this animal since I was not alone.

In addition, it looked numb. I had a gut feeling that it must be that reckless animal that survived the collision with my car last August.

It thought it had found a new toy at that time.

Cool sighting and photos! Can they be mean and attack you? Especially if it is the one that ran into your car. He might want revenge.

Michigan is starting to have problems with feral pigs- similar. They are supposed to be pretty dangerous.

Wow, you don't see one wild pig everyday in the wild. I can't blame you for being excited.

It is alway easy thier track but not to see them in person. Lucky it was alone as usually there are in group sometimes.

It is always special taking pictures of animals. When I saw your blog title in my bloglist the first thing that I thought was he has a new ipad.

I've heard that there's a small herd of wild boar not far from where I live, just didn't have a chance yet to go and have a look,and take some photos if possible. They seem to be nocturnal, and that will make things different.

You know, it's easy to say he was reckless..he may have gut feelings of his own after that experience?

You shoul shoot with poison darts. When I was living in NTU in Singapore, they cleared the land, and often there were wild babi colliding with cars.

I don't have a romantic Ah Pek. I didn't go kayaking with him. I went in my brother's place in Australia.

Wow...I have never seen a live wild boar before. I wouldn't want to bump into one up close.

poor boar if that's the one rainfield or lucky that it's still alive and roaming around?

Thank you for the follow, I would never want to see that guy, unless he is your pet. lol
I've met one before and it wasn't a very pleasant event.

I am in Arizona and this morning I saw 14 wild boars..here they call them Javelina's I will post next week about my experience with them.
It was 2 mothers with thier youngsters!

I think these may be the first pictures of a wild boar I have ever seen on a blog. I've heard that boars can be very mean, and any kind of pig is smart. That is one of the few types of animal that I might be afraid of. Good pictures.
