    I'm working on a photobook of our AK pictures for DsD 14 and I have a few animals I can't identify. I'm hoping you all can help me.

    The first 3 are my photos - the last two I borrowed from Mark B.

    1. I want to say these are Thompson's gazelles but I can't be sure.

    3. I feel like I should know this one! It's on the tip of my brain.

    5. What kind of monkey is this?

    Somehow I managed to write down the tricky ones like tapir, okapi, mandrill and gerenuk but I assumed I'd remember these later! No such luck.
    Thanks for any help you can give me!

    the only thing I found was a list of some of the animals in the park/hotel. hope this helps some.

    Anikole Cattle, Bongo, Blesbok, Eland, Grant's Zebra, Greater Kudu, Impala, Reticulated Giraffe, Thomson's Gazelle, Waterbuck, and White-Bearded Wildebeest.

    Abyssinian Ground Hornbill, Blue Crane, East African Crowned Crane, Greater Flamingo, Marabou Stork, Ostrich, Pink-Backed Pelican, and Ruppel's Griffon Vulture.

    1. Yeah, I think they are Tommies.

    2. Colobus Monkey (I should know, I have a stuffed one that sleeps with me)

    3. I just gotta have a Wildebeest!

    4. Scimitar-horned Oryx, they are extinct in the wild :(

    5. White-cheeked Gibbon. Gibbons are actually part of the ape family, they have no tails.

    I've spent a few days in AK :) And have a few thousand pics, so the names stick after awhile, or at least which names to google to see if the pics match.

    Hope, you rock! :worship: Thank you so much! Somehow I knew if anyone would know, it would be you!

    Wildebeest - of course! I knew it was a "W" but the only name that kept popping into my head was warthog. Duh!

    Is that what differentiates monkeys from apes? The presence of a tail? I learn something new on the Disboards every day!

    How about one more if it's not too much trouble - this was from the Maharajah Trek:

    Nancy, this should help!

    http://www.*************/animal_species.htm

    It's a good thing that list came up with google, because otherwise I wouldn't know. After consulting that list, I think maybe an Eld's Deer.

    Interesting use of the filter, here....replace the *** in the URL field with wdw magic.com (no spaces)

    Thanks to digital, what I like to do, is if you can find a sign or something, take a picture of the sign, then take a picture of the animal. I do this for places all the time, because even if I take notes, sometimes I have problems matching things up.
