Nilgai Antelope

Day 12 - The Nilgai Antelope comes from India and is a member of the Bovine family. Nilgais do well in zoos, and are very popular on game farms. It is estimated that there are more than 15,000 in captivity. By contrast, there are probably no more than 10,000 left in India.

These animals are friendly and photogenic. They make funny faces. I'll post some of their expressions at a later time. The insides of their ears have zebra stripes.

He looks like a sweet animal. I love the bokeh in the background. All of your images are very sharp and have such great color!
