    Mother and daughter in tandem. Reintje now has a new foal to take care of, but Geertje is her 4 year old daughter.

    I've found from Wildlife Aid's YT channel, British/European badgers are far less ferocious in general than the US ones. Try that with a US badger and you'd pull back a stump.

    We went out to the park today, and to say our search for the donkeys was a success would be a bit of an understatement.

    We were actually pretty close this time, the beginning of this video is not zoomed in at all.

    Once they all got together my mom counted about 12.
    We were wondering how many were male or female, and we eventually got our answer about a few of them, as you can see in this video.

    It amazes me just how much variety there is in their coloring.

    I tired to get a video of a couple of them playing, but I kept looking over my phone so I could watch them, and didn't realize I lost track of them in the video.

    I took some pictures too, but I haven't uploaded them to Imgur yet, if you guys want I can add and post them later.
    We actually ran into them pretty close to the park, and we ended up spending almost half an hour just standing and watching them. We were up closer to them they just grouped together and stared at us, but once we moved away, they actually started to spread out a bit and that's when they started playing and that was when we really couldn't tear ourselves away.

    A grumpy Devil Scorpionfish trying to blend in on the reef… perfect for my mood this morning after my neighbors lit off fireworks last night from 11pm to 2am. :cardie: :wtf: :cardie: :wtf: :thumbdown:

    I can relate, we have neighbors that for a while were firing off fireworks every weekend. We can kind of tolerate it occasionally on holidays, but these were not any kind of holidays or anything like that.

    I'd pet a baby badger, but definitely not an adult one, they're mean.

    Excuse my ignorance, but just what are those prehistoric-looking beasts?
