Camera Critters # 82

Camera Critters by Misty Dawn, go here to see who's participating.


Here are some more animals from my Summer Trip to The Wilds in Ohio. You can see the first post here. This is a Banteng the forerunner of today's cows. A very large animal.
This is a Scimitar Oryx, the horns are the shape of the sword.
This is an Eland a very large field grazer.
These are the Asian Rhino in the water.
These are the Bactrian Camel in their shedding phase.
It was a fun trip with a lot of great critters, you can see more critters by visiting the above link.

Great pictures taken in the 'wilds' Tom. Those camels need a good brushing!!!! ha....

I knew it must have been summer since the cow was enjoying the water...

Have a great day. Happy Halloween.

It does look like you were on a safari!! Great photos here..dang, those are some horns there!

Jedediah said...

I love the camels, like big piles of carpet :) The oryx is impressive!

Mariana said...

Super set ! Bravo !

Tipper said...

Such neat animals.

Carol said...

So many animals...where were you in Ohio!

Lilli & Nevada said...

oh gosh those horns are beautiful, the camels definitely need a hair cut LOL

Adrienne in Ohio said...

Wow, those camels are really shaggy! I wonder if that itches.

Rhea said...

Wow, those are some awesome photos! I love it. Those were definitely some shaggy shedding camels. And the rhinos were incredible!!

Craver Vii said...

Those bactrians look like a range of mountains.

All those large mammamals generate quite a large stench. That is why I am quite happy with your pics... nicely captured views, but no field patties.

Gaelyn said...

Still think these were not taken in Ohio. Those bad hair day camels went extinct in the US after the last ice age. But they are good shots, wherever taken. ;-)
