Almost all about animals: avoiding animal cruelty, observations about daily life with animals, treks to see animals in the wild, acting to preserve habitat and conserve species, animal photos and more. Also a bit about Idaho and life in Boise.
What the heck is a Nilgai? This creature, Asia's largest antelope. These photos are from Velavadar National Park but I saw these several places in India. They reminded me of the Eland in Africa, and they are sort of cobbled-together looking. It is a strange animal - also known as a blue bull. Very chesty and with a downhill slope to the body like topi, hartebeest, and giraffe. I had never seen this animal in a zoo that I am aware of, of heard of it, before I saw it - so it was one of the "new to me" species of the trip.
