Warthogs - Beastly Beauties at the Indianapolis Zoo
the Indianapolis Zoo, they occupy exhibit space just across from
the fleetest animals on land, the graceful and gorgeous
cheetahs, but these creatures can accurately be described as
neither particularly graceful nor handsome to look at.
But, if beauty is in the eye of the beholder, then these knobby
and spiky animals look pretty good to anyone interested in
animals with an attitude. The beastly beauties are two
species from Africa, warthogs and crested porcupines.
Perhaps they are slightly less imposing than its African
companions – the elephants, giraffes and rhinos, for example –
but you nevertheless wouldn’t want to get on the bad side of
either warthogs or porcupines. They both have the means to
defend themselves; the warthogs with their amazing and
extraordinarily sharp tusks (and surprising speed) and the
porcupines with their razor sharp quills.
You’ll have fun and be fascinated when visiting these cuties in
the Plains Biome at the Zoo. Get more information:
