Exotic Animals, an Encounter

It was my first time to encounter these animals from a wildlife park in New South Wales.  We visited the park called “Altina Wildlife Park” located in Darlington Point last October 2015 about 615 kilometres west of Sydney or six and a half hours drive by car.  We were told by our tour guide that most of the animals they cared for in the widelife park were imported from other countries like Africa and Southeast Asia.

I took the photos of the animals below while we were on tour around the park aboard a horse drawn cart.

As we were quite afar from the animals, I used my 75-300mm lens again, also, because we were not allowed to get off the cart while on tour and while the tour guide narrates history of the park or describes every locations and animals we met.

We were given a chance to feed the goats at the middle of the tour when we stopped midway of the safari.  I just don’t know the goats love loaf breads to eat instead of grass as their food or perhaps the bread has already been fed to them for sometime until became a regular part of their daily foods.

I like these animals because of their elongated horns.
