Packrat and Prickly Pear

Packrats are rarely seen as they are nocturnal and quite secretive. They do like eating prickly pear pads, though. Note the teeth marks. Packrats 'nibble'; javelina usually bite and pull, leaving 'threads' behind. (Try the javelina method with celery and you'll see what I mean.)
