We’re goin’ to the zoo, zoo, zoo

This month Becky’s Squares are focusing on odd things – you can interpret this any way you want so I am going to take you all to the zoo this month. San Diego Zoo to be precise and the photos featured will be either odd looking animals, animals with odd names, odd facts or slightly odd photos. I hope you’ll enjoy my selection.

Day Three

The dama gazelle (Nanger dama) also known as the “addra gazelle” or “mhorr gazelle”, is a species of gazelle. It lives in Africa, in the Sahara desert and Sahel region. The critically endangered dama gazelle is also one of the rarest. Fewer than 400 individuals remain in the wild, mainly in Chad and Sudan. Addra are considered the largest type of gazelle, with incredibly long legs and both males and females have horns. They curve back and up, but reach a length of only about 17 inches with males having 18 to 23 distinct rings and smooth tips.

If you want to join in either daily, weekly or just on the odd occasion then please visit Becky, the only rule is that the main photo MUST be a square – that is four equal sides! You have been warned 😉

I have lived in the UK for most of my life, but when young I definitely had wanderlust and even ended up living in South Africa for several years which was a wonderful experience. I now look forward to a long and leisurely retirement doing what I like most - gardening, photography, walking and travelling.

      1. When I was in Tokyo with my sister a few years ago we came across a whole floor in a department store full of massage chairs for sale. They were all plugged in so we spent quite some time trying them all out. Free back massages!
