Curiosity…

Even our four-legged friends are curious about critters and nature. Animals have an exploratory nature, also, to discover and make new friends. Animals know by instinct which other animals are friend or foe. As you can see Sullivan (dog photographed above) doesn’t hear the howl of a wolf or coyote (their known predators in the Texas Hill Country) from the turtle. The turtle doesn’t smell like a bobcat or mountain lion (feline predators of the Texas Hill Country). Therefore, his instinct tells him it is okay to be curious and discover. Just as the fawn pictured below doesn’t receive any tell-tale signs of danger from the dove she is investigating.
