The ABC of Animals - Fantastic!

Hey there, do you know your ABCs? How about your animal ABCs? If not, it's time to learn them, as we go from the A to the Z of beautiful animals.

R is for Rhinoceros, like this calm Rhino enjoying the water and the oxpecker birds pecking at the insects on his body. The Rhinos and the birds have an understanding: I won't shoo you away, and you will eat the bugs that annoy me.

S is for Seal. This 'teen' southern elephant seal can be found on the island of South Georgia, part of the South Sandwich Islands in the Southern Atlantic Ocean.

T is for Tarsier, the smallest primate in the world. Here are two of these adorable little guys clutching at a tree, their big golden eyes curious.

abc of animal photos
U is for Uakari, a larger, but still small, primate which has a short take but is apparently a good shaver, with no hair on its face. Their faces come in a variety of shades from pink to deep red, and they live in the tropical forests of South America.

abc of animal photos
Y is for the Yak, a long-haired bovine found throughout the Himalayan region of south Central Asia. The Yak is one of the oldest domesticated animals, and has been helping men out for thousands of years. This one is munching on some grain near the sacred Yundrok Yumtso Lake, Tibet.
