Pat Houlihan posted this great shot of a ringtail by his cousin Christine Killgore Roberts on facebook. The property where photographed was off RR 2630 northwest of Rocksprings. Ringtails have become rare in some parts of the county. The ringtail is a cat-sized carnivore resembling a small fox with a long raccoonlike tail. Its bushy tail is flattened and nearly as long as the head and body, with alternating black and white rings. These animals are almost wholly nocturnal and spend the majority of the day sleeping in their dens. They leave their dens at night to feed. Ringtails eat a wide variety of foods. Birds, rodents, carrion, reptiles and amphibians, and insects such as grasshoppers and crickets form the bulk of their diet, although they also eat native fruits and berries as well.
Although there was a lack of quorum at Monday night’s Rocksprings City Council meeting, several announcements were still made. (To note, there was no action taken on any discussion).
