It may look as an ordinary animals for some people especially for those living in South Africa and Botswana, but for me these are rare animals and seeing them for real is kinda fascinating. Photos shown above were taken last Sunday at the Al Ain Zoo. It was a sunny and lazy Sunday for them (I guess) when all of the sudden a loud noise disturbed them. They were all keen to see what's going on with their surroundings :)
