Purple prickly pear

Purple prickly pear munched Posted by Picasa

I've looked and looked every evening and every day for wildlife. This is what I found today. I have no idea how the critters can eat this cacti. It's not uncommon to find edges munched like this one. At Brantley Lake State Park my husband found pieces of prickly pear like this one in the middle of the road two mornings in a row.

Today I saw one lizard, one cottontail, two cowboy New Mexican men (very friendly), and some birdies. Am still looking to sight a gray fox. Tomorrow I'll look some more.
