Animals at our Local Zoo: Bison & Deer
The Indian Bison or Gaur
When they opened the Vandalur zoo, near Chennai, India, they had only one Indian Bison. He's that reclining black chap in the third picture. Now they have about four. Some of them are quite young, and have a teenager's attitude! Look at their hair! My son shot the teenagers, but I relate to that magnificient guy there, and took his pic!
My Dear Friends!
Who said zoos don't have a sense of humour? Ours has. They have gone and spelt it 'Dear.' It shows, of course, that the keepers are very affectionate towards these gentle people. It was feeding time, and they were all around the watering trough or the lunch table.
