Photo Of The Day #37


The most unpredictable animals in our local zoo are the bush dogs.

As they run from one place in their habitat to the other and when you don’t expect it the most they don’t run at all, it takes a lot of patience to take a photo of them.

Patience I didn’t had enough yet. Pedro had (when I wasn’t around) and managed to take this adorable image of this cute animal.

By the way: I don’t know why we do it but from the day of the introduction of these animals at Gaia Zoo Kerkrade we call them Dogs From Hell.
