A friend of mine from Portland asked me the following question on Facebook after I posted this image there:
“Why is it a Mule?”
“Odocoileus hemionus (mule deer) is native to western North America and is named after it’s ears, which resemble those of a mule.”
This is one of two images I was able to take of our long eared friend while on a stress relieving walk the other day in rural SE Colorado.
So now you know. Happy Friday.
Love to you all.
