[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The desert around Phoenix is full of life, the wildlife
thrive around the city that literally resurrected from
dust.. Why? Phoenix was build on top of an ancient Hohokam city. For more than 1,000 years, the Hohokam peoples occupied the land that would become Phoenix. It is believed that, between 1300 and 1450, periods of drought and severe floods led to the Hohokam's abandonment of the area. Then modern Phoenix came to be.... So all around this are we can find the Collared Peccary, Pecari tajacu.

In some areas of the Southwestern United States they have become habituated to human beings and live in relative harmony with them in such areas as the suburbs of cities where there are still relatively large areas of brush and undergrowth to move through.
