I hope many of you will take part in this challenge!

The unnamed animal seems like golden takin to me. Anyway, wishing you all wonderful 2017, and the most peaceful New Years eve for all people and animals fearful of loud fireworks!

Re: January 2017 Animal and Wildlife Challenge

An excellent lot to choose from. Thank you. The bovine could be a water buffalo, but I am not an expert. Thought, at first, he might be a moose, but do they have different horns?

Re: January 2017 Animal and Wildlife Challenge

Yes Ive just googled him and yes I agree a Golden Takin he is!

Isnt it interesting to see an animal we dont know! When I googled him, I see Santiago Zoo has a big description of them and a photo as well - he looks similar to your photo Viginie so I guess that's what he is.

Great photos thanks Virginie, the sleeping gorilla appeals to me but so do the zebra, ibis and tern. Oh and the Golden Takin.

Re: January 2017 Animal and Wildlife Challenge

I think I have chosen. It took a while of looking though, I like all the pictures! It will have to wait a bit longer though, I'll need to print it out and the printer is behind my Christmas tree!
