Giraffe chewing

Giraffe chewing

After dedicating a post to Kruger's posteriors last week, my 6-year-old nephew said to me, "Aunt Akila, I liked those.  I wish you had 10,000 more butt shots."  Unfortunately, I don't have any more but I think my nephew will like this post *almost* as much.  These are the mug shots of Kruger, revealing the fun, funny, and contemplative animal faces captured during our 10 days in Kruger.

I could NOT get enough of giraffe faces while we were in South Africa. They're just so cute, curious and cuddly-looking! But what I'm really jealous of is your Pumbaa--er, warthog encounter. We only saw one that I recall, and he ran off before I could even get my lens cap off!

The giraffes are awesome, aren't they? They give the funniest faces. I am so surprised that you didn't see more warthogs. In Kruger, they were everywhere and they stood stock still quite close to the road. We heard from one of the rangers that they have very bad eyesight so they don't realize how close your car is to them and they have been known to come right up to the cars and snuffle around the wheels.

Andi - We actually do have an elephant mug shot but I thought that I would feature some of the other great animals this time since I've been posting so much about elephants lately!
