All the Animals

On the road to and from Ooty, I had the best luck to see a few of India's famous animals. Our car managed to make a quick getaway from a family of grumpy elephants. That was so much fun. Monkeys, cows and goats are everywhere outside of the cities so they weren't a novelty after a while. It's still the best fun seeing all these animals that I wouldn't get the chance to see outside of zoos. Seeing elephants in the wild was amazing.

Bulls (male cows) are highly valued and a sign of wealth

A peacock heading away from the road wouldn't show us his full beauty

We had to park down the road from a group of elephants because they are grumpy in mating season

Unfortunately, this was the only tiger sighting

You have to be ready to wind up your windows to stop the monkeys getting onboard

Boars taking a walk. These are not attractive animals
