Mule Deer Eating Prickly Pear Cactus   Leave a comment

Mule Deer in Sabino Canyon (November 8, 2022) —- Images by kenne

On the SCVN Bird and Plant walk (November 8, 2022), we spotted a mule deer eating what appeared to be prickly pear pads.
We are aware that deer will eat the fruit but not the pads. You can tell from these photos that she seems to enjoy the chew.
However, she began to sneeze and use her left hind hoof to scratch her head — wonder why.
