A Tale of Two Takins

Talk about lucky timing! I stopped to shoot this young male Takin (rhymes with rockin') at the zoo on Wednesday. He was proudly surveying his world from the peak of these rocks...king of the hill it seemed.

As I started to turn away, an older male wanders over and places his front hooves on the bottom step; they stare at each other as if ready to challenge for the peak.

Then, the old guy looks over at me as if to say, "Watch this, lady!"

The younger one is holding on to his spot at the peak though, as senior turns back to the task at hand.

And then he proceeds to climb to the peak while the young one is still trying to hold onto his place...and his pride.

Alas, the youngster was no match for the older guy.

And here he is, the true King of the Takin Hill!

Lovin' Life ~~ And Lucky Timing!
