Travel Photo of the Day (September 12)

This week I’ve been sharing photos of animals I saw in Botswana a couple of years ago. Here’s one that always made me giggle. Warthogs are such unusual creatures. I loved how he dropped down on his knees. They do this so they can dig with their snouts. My book refers to this guy as the common warthog. I’m not sure how the word common fits.

      I loved watching these little guys. They have a way about them that makes me giggle and if I wasn’t terrified of his horns, I’d give him a hug.

    Oh, I love that picture. Warthogs are so cute. And it reminds me of the character out of the Lion King.
    Thanks for sharing that one.
