The familiar javelina (actually a peccary, not a "pig") is usually an unwelcome visitor because he/she brings the entire family with them and eats the flowers and vines you have in your yard. But this metal sculpture standing guard (definitely life size) might even deter the herd. And what about that nearby cat? There was also a big metal lizard decorating the front but I couldn't capture all 3 in one shot.
I'm a transplanted New Yorker who loves the Tucson climate. On New Year's Day I have a bit of fun calling my (snowbound) east coast friends to announce that I'm drinking coffee while sitting on my patio. (:
