Hunting Behavior

Below are two videos on hunting behavior in the arctic.

The first features wolves cooperating to hunt and kill an arctic hare. It provides a glimpse of how hard wolves work to stay alive and raise a family. It yields a small meal for a group of predators. It also provides an idea of how alert arctic hares must be if they are to stay alive and raise their families. The film was produced by the BBC.

The second features a Canada lynx hunting a snowshoe hare. The film title is "Canadian Lynx," which isn't correct. Reminds me of the late Curt Gowdy, the longtime "voice" of the Boston Red Sox who was fond of talking about Canadian geese/honkers.  Nope, Canada geese.

I dislike pointing out things that you can see and hear for yourself so I won't. I don't want to intrude  into your own observations and discoveries. I hope you notice things I didn't.
