Swine Dining: Pigs Feast on Discarded Pumpkins

 

Don’t throw away that Halloween pumpkin just yet: RC Farms will gladly turn it into pig food.

RC Farms, a North Las Vegas pig farm, again will collect used pumpkins at locations throughout southern Nevada through Monday. If you would prefer to feed a pig yourself, you can bring your pumpkin to RC Farms during business hours from 8 a.m. to noon and 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. until Monday. The farm is located in North Las Vegas at the corner of North 5th Street and Ann Road.

Mojave Max Rises and Shines

Mojave Max Rises and Shines

Mojave Max, a desert tortoise whose first appearance is seen as a sign of spring, has emerged from his burrow at the Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area near Las Vegas.

A Clark County spokeswoman says Mojave Max emerged just after 2 p.m. Tuesday. It's not the earliest or the latest the captive mascot has emerged from his reptilian form of winter hibernation in the 12 years since the tradition began. The winter nap is called brumation.

The earliest was Feb. 14. The latest was April 14. Last year, it was March 30. Warm temperatures, longer daylight hours and an internal clock are believed to be factors in the timing.

An annual contest lets southern Nevada schoolchildren guess the date and time Max will emerge. A winner hasn't been announced yet.
