Breakfast, road hog & Roman gravitas.

Came across these Zebras while walking early on Sunday morning.

Two mares and their foals.




Time for breakfast Junior.




Road Hog coming through. Warthogs don't ask permission, built like miniature tanks and just as strong there is not much they are afraid of. Those tusks are formidable weapons and they know how to use them. Fences are minor obstacles and are just bulldozed out of the way.



Not such a good photo, cropped out of another photo of a Zebra. Don't let those short legs fool you, Warthogs can put on a turn of speed that will surprise you.




Mother and child.



Nyala ram, the epitome of Roman Gravitas.




Head and shoulders a very handsome animal.

Very nice photos, Phil. I always wonder: are zebras white with black stripes or black with white stripe? Love Jo
