    Hopefully they will take a few of the bloody cats.

    I didn't know you were infested with those noisy crap factories over there too. They are a blight on every bit of open green space up and down the east coast of the US.

    Night shot on my trail cam in my back garden not as clear as the actual vid third fox in a month quite a good sized dog fox.
    Comes in over a 5ft fence and goes out over another.
    Waiting for the Sparrow Hawk to come back which was why the family bought me the camera.
    I have few poor photos of the male taken through the windows but the week before my birthday the female was sat on the fence looking into the kitchen window as my wife opened the blinds.
    I put the camera out for two weeks then took it in to change the batteries and forgot to put it out. The damn thing sat on the bird table looking at me.
    Haven't seen it since although it has taken birds from a neighbours garden.

    Just returned from a 3 day canoe trip up north. It was extremely hot and a daily swim in the lake was very welcome. At least until 3 of these beauties decided to share our little section of shoreline.

    Snapping turtles can't pull their heads and legs into their shells. They're so bad a** that they don't need too.

    The Common Snapping Turtle

    We see one on almost every trip to Algonquin Provincial Park. They can live to over 100 years and can grow up to 75 lbs. They don't appear to be very aggressive but I've not been inclined to test that. I've seen one snap a 3 lb. fish in half with one bite so I give them their space.
