from cats and dung beetles we quickly move on through the next few letters of the alphabet … first, a breeding herd of elephants, and they’re breeding. no, that’s not the baby elephant’s trunk in the last photo. then onto flamingos. barely pink flamingoes, but flamingos nonetheless. the giraffes are very graceful, in an awkward way. jackals are part of the canine family, while hyenas aren’t, and if there were any “i” animals, i didn’t spot them. check out the teeth! and that’s enough of the safari for now. next: something that isn’t the safari.
a few more photos from ngorongoro crater. click on each for a larger view. next: on to the serengeti.
