Found an unauthorized passenger on my dolly this morning.

That's a fireable offense, unapproved rider.

Thinking back on this for this year, I don't think I've seen a single Praying Mantis hanging around my truck or trailer. In 2021, I saw quite a few.

I have seen more skunks, badgers, hummingbirds, and porcupines this year though.

Antelope Mom and Twins at Little America WY truck stop. About 200 feet from my truck.

They walked away from my line of sight after I got a couple more pictures. Then I walked Monty over to the grass so he could water it. They came within 75 ft of me.

What a coincidence! I was just at Little America, too. I didn't see any Pronghorn that night, though.

No WONDER!!

Antelopes are day creatures....Pronghorn, otoh (on the other hand...) might MATE nocturnally, but because of their smaller stature may not be as easily seen.

They ARE in the same Genus as the antelope, but are herbivores. Laura's pals in the photo...eat INSECTS, too! Antilocapra americana genus/species, yet many differences.

You got lucky, and hit on a topic one of my kids did in school (or maybe I did?) ... anyway~

Antelopes are noted for their beauty, grace, and speed in running. Most are distinguished by upswept, back-curving horns. Their coats of hair are usually golden, reddish tan, or gray, often with white beneath and on the face and rump. Some are strikingly marked.

Pronghorns are the shorties of the bunch, around 3' tall with much less grace and agility,... and they eat bugs...and do naughties at night! Be glad you DIDN'T see any, haha!

All good, I've not seen either, ever.

Yeah, I know about the Pronghorn. Two on the wall at the cabin.... I saw a 16" male once (after dark) there at the Stop sign for the exit. He was eating grass at 0200, and less than 25' from my truck.

Thanks Anne!

I didn't know some of that info. I did know that antelope were day animals but didn't know the night time info. I've never seen any out and about at night. Learn something new all the time! 😁

You're welcome, gal!

Funny thing is, bet that 'shortie' that Pack saw munching grass, was 'hungry' after his 'nighty nasty!' rofl-3.gif

The REAL antelopes are gorgeous creatures w/their white fluffybuttage, ... the short ones, not so much!

I just found out, Jamie did a project on the K,P,C,O,F,G,S ... on said species .....Knew I heard it somewhere!

MORE PIX, you two!! I'm waiting! :)~

ABOVE, is another trailer for the thread, when anybody cares to start one; THIS guy got STUCK on 314 and 42 (bottomed out) a while back. Apparently, enough of these occured, to where the county actually GRADED the road, and raised the asphalt in & around. Wow, eh?

Thursday night at the Twin Falls, Idaho County Fair rodeo. Bull riding, barrel racing, bronco busting, etc. This is an NFR qualifying event stop.
