Gexx in Knoxville

The wild world of the forest

Posted by Gexx on August 12, 2009

Well, M and I, in our last excursion, discovered that the area is supporting a healthy bear population.  In one area we saw a Mama Bear with two cubs, and in another we saw a Mama with three cubs.  The second family, we saw while Mama was grubbing around a tree.  The three cubs were frolicking.  That is, they were jumping on each other and tumbling around.  Then they all tried climbing up a dead stump – at the same time.

Other animals of note include a big black beetle, a katydid, an 8 inch earthworm, an 8 point buck, and scores of turkeys.
