Here's some new pictures~
That may be the reason I have so many messages! I though that someone new had found my gallery and went on a faving spree (which has happened and there's nothing wrong with that!).

Thank you very much to :iconrainylake: for suggesting the DD and :iconanoya: for featuring the cute little gerenuk. 
Gerenuk Stitch by DeeOtter
This feature is also pretty special because his father Woody passed away last month. The males don't play much of a role in the upbringing of the young, but they would hang out together from time to time (when Woody wasn't bugging Stitch's mom to make more babies that is).

This really means a lot to me because it gets this species more exposure. Too many times I visit exhibits that feature ungulates and most people just pass by saying 'it's just a deer.' They're sooo much more! The biggest difference is that deer have antlers (which drop every year) and antelopes (like gerenuks) have horns which are permanent structures. And some antelope have REALLY awesome horns (some species have male and females with horns, with the males usually having the more elaborate horns). And they have pretty neat behaviors, like the gerenuk featured above can stand on their hind legs to reach leaves on a tree (they can do this as kids too).

So next time you are visiting a zoo (or are lucky enough to go on a safari somewhere!) don't overlook the hoofed critters! Get to know them and you may learn something new and maybe appreciate them a bit more. 

Stitch is probably a bit bigger by now, and hopefully this spring I'll have updated pictures of him!

I'm Deidre! I love taking pictures of animals, nature, landscapes and anything that happens to catch my eye.

My photographic goal at the moment is to hopefully aid wildlife biologists with my photography or become a staff photographer for an accredited, zoo or sanctuary.

My future career plans include first obtaining a biology degree, doing a handful of internships and become a zookeeper at an accredited zoo.
Super long time goal includes starting up a sanctuary.
