Two-day-old mourning dove hatchlings at Wildlife Care Association, a non-profit near Sacramento, CA. The eggs were found on tractor-trailer and brought in and hatched here via an incubator. Note the ‘egg tooth’ on the ends of their beaks, which are used to help them break through their egg shells during hatching.

Thanks to staff and volunteers, these birds are healthy and will be released back into the wild later in 2017.

Southwestern gray fox (Urocyon cinereoargenteus scottii) at Southwest Wildlife Conservation Center in Scottsdale, AZ.

This animal is named Frank. He was found as a two-week-old baby in downtown Phoenix. He was behind a chicken coop, and he was wearing a blue cat collar with a bell on it. Somebody had found him and had taken him in as a pet, but he obviously escaped. He’s imprinted on humans and is not releasable to the wild.

Frank is used as an educational animal here at the Center and at schools, where the staff teaches that wild animals teaches that wild animals should not be kept as pets.
