I'm sure we're going to see lots of incredibly cute and cuddly animals for Corner View this week. The kind that we can't resist going 'Aahhhh' over. But my animal is not quite the cutest things you'll see, but he sure is fluffy and impressive.
We recently made a trip to a nearby safari park, Beekse Bergen. The first time we visited this park was about 6 years ago. The lasting memory from that trip was a giraffe licking our car windscreen! It had been raining and the windscreen was covered in water droplets that the giraffe quite enjoyed. What a huge tongue he had! Wish I had a photo of that to show you.
This time, we spent so much time watching the Hamadryas baboons. Small babies clinging onto their mothers backs. Males sitting up high to keep an eye on everyone. Juveniles springing from one rock or tree to another. They are so entertaining.
This particular guy was obviously the leader of the pack. And doesn't it show. Looks like he spent all morning grooming himself for this photo! Who needs a hair crimper when you've got hair like this?!
After a while I think he was a little bored with us taking photos of him! Check out the teeth!
