Watch: Animals roam around near the San Pedro River in Southern Arizona

The San Pedro River Basin is home to more than 80 species of mammals.

That includes pumas, bats, and bears.

Then there are another 250 species of birds, lots of native fish, and amphibians — such as western barking frogs, the Center for Biological Diversity says.

The center’s Russ McSpadden caught several animals in action near the San Pedro in Southern Arizona. Check out the video below.

Linda Wallace-Gray took this photo this spring at her home in the Tucson Mountains. “This female javelina had twins although only one is in this picture. If you look closely this baby was just born as it still has its cord. ÊShe is a very attentive and caring mother. ÊThe herd comes by regularly and are very fun to watch.” Submitted by Linda Wallace-Gray.

Came home from a short trip to find this mama raising her family in our courtyard right outside front door! She had triplets but one of the babies got stuck in our gate and died. She was fiercely protective of her remaining two and put them in the tree every morning as she hunted. They spent the heat of the day sleeping and playing in the cool, right at our front door!

This is one of 14 quail that I rescued after opening my front door and seeing a bobcat, on our front patio, eating the mother who sat on her eggs for weeks…that night I came home and 9 were hatched. I fed them then took them and the remaining eggs to the wildlife sanctuary…with one hatching in the car on the way!!! Just thought it was cute!!! and this baby is not even 24 hours old!!!! look how big already!!!
