I knew I probably wouldn't get around to posting anything elaborate, today, but I'll bet you never expected me to stick you with a photo of a rhino. ;)
Huzzybuns and I spent a nice afternoon at the local zoo, yesterday. The Jackson Zoo is struggling but there's still plenty to see. The white rhino entertained us by flopping onto his side, where he let out two tremendous farts, shortly after I took this photo. Because there weren't many people at the zoo, I found that if I shuffled around in the leaves outside his fenced area, he'd turn to look at me. But, apparently, I wasn't all that interesting because he'd just stare for a moment and then turn away. Of course, I had to make that shuffle-shuffle noise several times, just to make sure the rhino was really looking my way because of crunching leaves as opposed to, you know, maybe just being an ADD rhino looking around because he couldn't keep his mind on anything. Yep, it was the shuffling.
Some people are just crying out for attention.

I literally LOLed when I read about the tremendous farts on Facebook. Priceless! Such a beautiful (down to earth) animal.ReplyDelete
That was truly a great moment. You don't get farted at by a rhino every day. LOL Yeah, beautiful and apparently endangered. I know one type of rhino went extinct in 2012.Delete
Wow neat photo. The rhino looks prehistoric!ReplyDelete
Thanks! Yes, he certainly does.Delete
