This week’s photo for Camera Critters is a rhino mother and baby, taken in Chitwan National Park, Nepal. We rode elephants into the park and were able to get quite close to the one-horned rhinoceros, which is an endangered species. I badly wanted to see a tiger, but we weren’t lucky enough on this trip. We did see a sloth bear, which was very exciting and seeing the rhinos was amazing. They’re a bit weird in appearance and look as if they’re wearing a suit of armor.
Love the picture. I’d want to see a tiger, too. Have a great day.
Very cool shot of mum and baby !!
That must have been fun, riding the elephant. Last time I rode an elephant, was many years ago at Auckland zoo …we were on a class trip.
Nice to see another Kiwi posting :-)
Wonderful photo, what a great experience you had seeing these beautiful animals. Thanks for sharing.
Hi Roberta – I hope you have a great weekend. Maybe we’ll both see a tiger one day. The tigers at Auckland zoo are having a birthday party this weekend. They’re one-year-old!
Karen – it is great to see another Kiwi posting. The elephants at Auckland zoo are quite old now. No rides these days!
Denise – thanks for stopping by. :grin:
Oooh! Baby rhinos are actually quite cute! And they are in the wild too – I saw rhinos and tigers yesterday, but at the zoo – definitely not the same experience!
Love that pic. How cool.
Great photo! You have such fun times.
wow that looks so amazing….I love the photo…
What a wonderful shot and a great place for you to visit.
