In Georgia they're known as country speed bumps! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smirk.gif[/img]

Re: Deer hunt in TX

You are right, they barely see and are hard of hearing as well but they can smell. Their memory is less than a minute. If you chase one and stop, within a minute he will have forgotten you were there or why he was running. Some more facts that I find interesting since I live in the Texas Hill Country and am surrounded by them. All offspring from a single litter will be identical and will be all male or all female. Since they seem to be the only critter in the US that actively seeks out and eats fireants he was probably pretty upset when you rescued him from the ant bed. They handle water in one of three ways. Shallow water will find them walking on the bottom accross an inlet but they can swim great distances on the surface and can also swim like a fish thru the water. Yes they can carry Hansen's disease(human leprosy) but only rarely and they taste great cubed in a chile or BBQ. You hit on the only question I have ever had, how can they make more noise moving thru the woods than a herd of deer.
