The Velvet Claw on Youtube

If you probably couldn’t tell from reading this blog, carnivoran evolution and natural history is one of my passions.

Where did all of this get started? I’d say sometime in the mid-90s. I used to watch A&E’s old Wildlife Mysteries series on Thursday nights. These were mostly very high quality wildlife documentaries and a lot of them were BBC productions.

Some of these films were shown in a series called “Carnivores.” It was about the evolution of the order Carnivora, minus the pinnipeds. And I loved it.

The series was based upon the work of David MacDonald, a carnivoran specialist and conservation biologist at Oxford.

In the UK, it was shown as “The Velvet Claw,” which is one reason I’ve had a few problems finding even clips of it online.

And for a long time, all that we could see are short clips, but now, well, it’s been uploaded in full.  Here is the entire series on Youtube.

I don’t know how long it’s going to be up, so you’d better watch it soon.

This is a black and white Yorkie.  Known is a ‘Biewer’ terrier – or Biewer Yorkshire terrier – ie a Yorkie that is black and white and brown.  The breed originated in Germany.

I met tiny 14 month old Raffi yesterday on Larvotto Beach in Monaco, where she lives.  Isn’t she adorable!

Sassy Pants

Yesterday I set out to try and get pictures of Lacey being sassy.  It isn’t as easy as it sounds.  I have to be 100% engaged with her or it instantly stops – which means I’m shooting with the camera held down near my knees while I’m flailing a big blue ball around with the other hand. I’m also having to keep Coulee entertained at the same time or she turns into a barking, jealous fiend.

But I occasionally fluked out. I wasn’t quite able to capture her cute little run though.. so I’ll have to try again.
