    That was probably the "lead scout" for his party still in Texas....doesn't pay to be the lead armadillo....

    The Hippo is really a very fascinating beast..but not to be trusted, so I am told. Would love a trip like this.
    Yes, there were a number of porters that dealt with the equipment, setup camp, cooked, changed the tires, etc.
    It was an absolutely incredible trip!

    Armadillos range into southern Indiana. Climate change said to be the reason. Not seen any that far north myself.

    They are one of my top 'do-not-run-over'. Few yrs back camping at Myakka State Park in Florida, the campground was crazy busy during Labor Day weekend. The next day I was the only person camping. Could hear something moving around in the brush near my tent. Noisy and slow movement toward me. Thought maybe wild hog from the noise. Turned out to be an armadillo.

    You forgot to include buffalo and prairie dogs on your list. I've had some close encounters with both.

    I was in a camp ground in NC and was getting stuff out of the Aspen and a goose stuck it head in the door and told me that was their spot. I tried to be nice to them but we had to have a who is the boss talk. I won. Zipp

    How about a mink? We were camping in a campground On lake Sarah in NW Mn. a few years back. This mink comes bouncing out of the woods behind the camper and sort of meanders along looking at us and disappears into a wood pile. Did not need firewood any way right then. I figure he was just checking out the camper.

    I don't see a "dog" listed. Have seen them several times, always assumed they were from another camp until I was the only one in the campground and one showed up. Camp ground owner said it wasn't his.

    Every time I camp in Soutern Ohio State Parks, I always seem to hear Coyotes howling at night. Every time. I also heard them once near my home in Central Ohio as well, but only once. That sounded like a very large pack, and when I looked at an Ohio Coyote Population Map, I was shocked to see one of the largest population centers was in my county. Really surprised me. But every stinking time I camp in Southern Ohio Parks, it's a Coyote Howling Fest. Never saw them, though. Just heard them. Probably a good thing. It's a bit unnerving when you are in a small tent, basically laying on the ground, and you hear a pack of Coyotes howling near you.

    You'd think that Coyotes would be something you'd most likely see and hear in the Southwest...... you know, somewhere near Desert Rock Formations, Acme stores and Road Runners.
