I'm very shy on wildlife but here is a very rare home bread 4 of a kind....

Four true albino squirrels in one shot (Poor quality shot, it was dusk and through d/glazed window)

Image

And to follow that here is an 'Ace' "Watch the Birdie"

Image

The dog belongs to a friend, the picture is mine I took in a rush, it came out better than I expected.

ahhhhhhhh - I got BLUFFED into not playing my Croc photo before now!

Image

I'll see your Komodo Dragon and play mine:

Image

But will up the ante with a solitary Baboon (which when saying the word "Baboon" always elicits lots of laughter from Egyptians)

Image

And will add the MEGA beast, the prime non-tusker - the E LA Fant!

Love the Goshawk Bigken :)

And what sort of 'Croc' is that LLL? I always get my crocs and gators mixed but I don't know what that fella is?

Back to the wilds.....here's a dozen Impala, in Hluhluwe Zululand, jokingly called 'McDonalds' because the markings on their rump looks like the McDonalds big 'M'
