  1. the little fella is so adorable. Such beautiful creatures. I love their eyes. That is quite a difference between the female and male horn. Thanks for pointing that out. I need to get back to Africa. Ever since I’ve been there I’ve wanted to go back.

    • I can see them in a park that is no more than 5 km. from our house… but these were taken in the Kalahari where they are in more natural surroundings.. and in far bigger herds, anything up to a 1000
