1. This Little Guy Started Hanging Around My Brother While He Was Working On A Car. I Believe It’s An American Kestrel. Which Means My Brother Made Friends With A Falcon

kestrelkat: It is a male kestrel! North America’s smallest falcon and my personal favorite. They’re spunky little guys, they normally eat insects like grasshoppers and small rodents but I’ve seen them take prey about as big as they are. I’m very jealous of your brother, I’ve always wanted to hold one!

2. Mountain Lions Moving Back Into Boulder During Lockdown

Pandepon: I didn’t know they moved in groups, always thought they stayed to themselves unless it was a mom and cubs.

Looks like they’re forming gangs.

The.Butterfly.Effect.530: Deers will often do this, hide their fawns and then return to collect them. If you ever find one leave it. If the mother does not return during the day then call an animal rescue. Offer water, not food. (This goes for all animals in need of rescue.)

8. My Friend’s Dad Found A Crab Holding A Donatello PEZ Dispenser

Willowy: He’s offering up a bribe to let him go! Please say he threw him back!

9. This Lizard Lives In My Birdhouse

The_One_Who_Meeps added: I bet he’s got a mini-fridge up in there, and he’s leeching power off of my house. I should probably charge him some rent.
