NJ Hogs

Post by lubricus » August 29th, 2010, 4:56 am

Well, Ive spent the last 2 1/2 weeks here in NJ for work and made a few ventures, here or there to find snakes. Well, I guess one could say I suceeded in said ventures but not exactly with the species I had in mind. Still though, whe n you have sucsess with hognose how can you be disapointed? LOL It had been several years since i sighted one and now I dont even have to care if I do or dont again LOL Anyway, on to the hogs...

I ended up killing this one with my big, hairless pink ape ugliness...

In total I found 6 babies and 2 adults. One of the babies got away before a pic and I have to download the pics of the other adult but yea, 8 hogs in total! I guess you could say that I was in Hog Heaven ;)

Thanks for viewing! Ill post the other pics from NJ shortly.

All the best,

Jeremy

awesome finds! i've lived in NJ my whole live and havern't found a single one, so I'd say 8 in two weeks is pretty good!

Yea, I agree, great pics Been in Jersey for 10 years and only seen 1. It is my main goal almost every time I go out. Have never been able to photograph one. I kinda assumed they are very rare here. You are definatly doing something right.

Thanks for all of the comments guys! It really was nice to see so many hogs. As for my luck, Im sure its easy to guess where I was. IF you take into account the majority of the animals seen and do check the life history of the species Im sure you can conclude why my luck was so good ;) Ive still got pics of another adult seen that I have to upload. Ill get to it after work emails ; ;

Take care!

I can't believe I forgot to comment on this. I know I grumbled jealously to myself a bunch over this. I have an idea on where you found these, but feel free to pm me the info just to see if I'm right. :thumb: :lol:

Those are some awesome animals.
