This is a classic - hoggy approaches new Chez Hog but senses a disturbance in the force (notice freeze for attention, foot poised, then forehead spike phalanx deployed) then another Hog approaches! The new Chad hog wanders up headbuts original hog in a show of dominance then waltzes in to have a good feed. Our original hoggy just has to chill and wait it's turn. Nature at work folks.
So, let's check out Mamahog at the beginning of the month, around the time she made her nest, and as she appears now (I reckon same hoggy, check shading around nose, stripe down forehead and colour or lack thereof around ears), and yeah she's like twice the size. Could be Disco as they both look similarish from the front but I think this is Mama, at least for now. Considering I saw her in the flesh when she was nesting and she was a big hog then, double that and I think she'd be able to start hunting cats for food.
Interesting to see the difference in as little as a month - hope to see the hoglets soon :3
Mamahog is checking out Hoghall - at first I was thinking maybe she was planning on moving house, but now I think she was checking out where her new playmate is at (based on the next video I upload which shows our new resident at Hoghall in colour - gosh!)
Guess who forgot to put food out last night until late. So Mamahog is having a snuffle about wondering where Chez Hog went, and guess who strolls up to have some dinner - why it's the Megahog who looks also to have taken up residence in the garden. Not sure she was too impressed with his introduction - let's see how they get on over the next few days and weeks.
Looks like a pesky cat has arrived and interrupted Mama Hog at Chez Hog. Impressive how blindingly fast she balls up when the cat jumps up. Then the spiky ball tips to the side slowly so she can get a peek if the cat has moved on - yep, so back to dinner again as if nothing happened :)
Looks like we have a new Hog in the garden - an excitable and flamboyant Hog he is indeed. In this video looks like all is peaceful, nothing is happening, all is quiet - then BOOM the Disco Hog arrives and has a right party it seems. Who is this strange Hog? Why it's the Disco Hog of course!
Mama Hog is back for some fine dining at Chez Hog. We can tell it's Mama Hog as there is a poor cut by me at the end where we see her return to her nest to sleep or watch Hogflix or something. Is she the mysterious Long Hog? Well we've not seen both together at the same time...
