Hi Will, the last hog of the year last season 2012, was dec 31. A tiny 4 1/2 neonate that had just consumed a lizard. I found it on my way to a new years party.

Hmmmmmmmmmm I have a hard time with your question, as you have several assumptions. Or it reads like that.

The prey is always down, as hogs dig their prey up. They are not about catching anything that hops or runs. May even have a hard time catching a wary egg.

So far, lizards are their primary food item, and they are active all year. Oh except days with snow on the ground and even some of those days.

Toads here normally only surface when is wet and warm, hogs also dig them up.

In this habitat, there is little and I mean little, activity until the rains, I found only a few tracks of any snake species, in the months of Jan, feb, march, april, may and june. I observed about the same for each month. I did observe a snake here and there, but no meaningful surface activity in any of those months, On this site.

The reality is, they were doing life events, pairing, breeding, nesting etc. During april, may, june and july. Without surface activity. The proof is in the beginning of the neonate wave. Cheers
