Fossil Rim Wildlife Center # 7

That's a Rhinoceros.  Note the size of the fence.  Our tour guide said that the fence is merely a suggestion.  This rhinoceros can walk through the fence at anytime.

 She is pregnant and weighs about 7,000 pounds.  Her eyesight is very poor - she has excellent hearing though and uses her hearing to maneuver around her lot.

 This one came right up to the bus for the food that we throw out.  I think it is beautiful.

Wild Turkey, I think.

Look at those horns (or antlers).  The tour guide explained that one (horns or antlers) grows out from the head and pushes up. The other grows out from the tips.  I don't remember which was which.  Me Bad.

I know this one - a zebra.  Every zebra has unique stripes - no two are alike - sorta like fingerprints.

This wraps up my visit to the Fossil Rim Wildlife Center.  It is a non-profit agency and receives no money from the Federal Government or the State of Texas.  Expenses are met by private donations and by giving these tours.   It is located near Glen Rose, Texas.

Back to the rally tomorrow,

Ron, Tippy and Treky
