animal by the creek
I thought it was an otter but now I think it was a mink. It was out in the day time on a fallen tree in the creek in a deep hole. It was making lots of noise digging around or something. The color was walnut brown rich brown and at first I thought it was a cat. It was not one bit afraid of me. It was fun to see it. On the way home an armadillo tried to commit suicide by running back toward my vehicle after I had slowed to let it cross the road. How they multiply is a mystery to me.
