The One, That is Different

There have been four ringtails for a long time. During the summer a fifth showed up, younger, smaller, and goofier (if that's possible). She comes out at night and sometimes during the day. Runs all over the place, climbs into the tree, bites on to her tail, and then does circles around and around the tree limbs, as if someone were spinning a hula hoop on a stick. Lately she's looking much larger and it's the wrong time of the year for that. While many times the females will stock up on hotdogs I saw here eat three on Wednesday night and four more, this being the last, just prior to this video. She probably weighs two and a half pounds so yesterday I saw her eat nearly a pound of hotdogs. A third of her weight in 24 hours. Looking down between the walls of the cistern and the outside rock I saw wrappers to three energy bars in the corner.

Happy New Year to you and all your two and four-legged friends. The year appears to be an exciting one, and I look forward to the Blog.
