Tanzania Animals (part three)

A baby Baboon looks up from the security of its mothers arms.

With any luck, that little baboon will transform into this someday.

This baby Zebra is so young its stripes are still wrinkled.

I thought someone had left a plastic toy tortoise in my parents backyard… until it started walking toward me.

A Blue Monkey in the canopy near Lake Manyara.

Cape Buffalo at the water’s edge. Early morning at Lake Manyara.

A closer look at a Cape Buffalo.

A Cheetah waits out the rain in Ngorongoro Crater.

In the Serengeti, afternoon sunlight and a Cheetah at rest.

Our tiniest antelope, the Dik Dik. They are often seen in pairs near the roadside where good cover is plentiful.

Elephants are thrilling to encounter. Sometimes peaceful, sometimes dangerous, always astounding.

A Giraffe feeds in Mikumi National Park.

In Zanzibar glowing worms pulse and crawl across rocks as the Indian Ocean rumbles in the darkness.

Hyenas are the definition of tough. They have immense jaw strength and can snap bones like toothpicks.

Closing out the Tanzania series, a Hyrax (related to the elephant) seeks relief from the blazing sun under our car.

  5. Beautiful!
    I really like how you got the elephants face and I like the cape buffalo, dik dik and the turtle. The shell has such a cool pattern on it.

    That cheetah appeared to have a very full and happy belly.
