Can't be too careful these days and I seriously doubt that he'd seen or a clicking thing (camera) before either!
Once we arrived on the island I had the chance to see quite a bit of wildlife.....
Two water buffalos (momma and calf) here and rumor had it they are mean as the dickens! In other words, keep clear and don't mess with them!
We rode around in an open-air jeep all day. They had one water buffalo that would charge and/or ram the jeep whenever it was near enough!
I didn't expect to fall in love with a Watusi, but this big guy was just the coolest! Check out that spotted hide where the white and black sections meet—isn't that cool?!
Again, the photos are no doing justice to the size of any of these creatures!
There were several species of deer on the island and unfortunately, Chris nor I could tell a Fallow from a Sika or an Axis deer. The fact that they moved faster than Superman might have had something to do with it too! These were quite small in size, but they're youngin's!
Last (for today) but not least, a 400 year old oak tree.....
So how do you know how old a tree is, I asked. You can't ask it...or can you? The tree was bored to take a sample of the rings that indicate growth. That's how you ask a tree its age.
More in the next post!
