Animals at the County Fair



Touch the nose.


Goat!  Dairy goats are normally dishorned as kids for safety, but show goats usually just have the tips trimmed.

They also had an "exotic" animal encounter show.  I got a few really great photos here.


A male Eclectus Parrot.  In an extreme case of sexual dimorphism, females of this species are bright red.


African Spurred Tortoise.  This guy is still fairly young, at a mere 50 pounds.  They can reach up to 200 pounds at full maturity.


Madagascar Hissing Cockroaches!  The girl managed to keep her wits about her, just barely.  She was right on the edge of freaking out.  I would too.


Juvenile American Alligator.



Patagonian mara, also called the Patagonian cavy or Patagonian hare.  It is the fourth largest rodent, after the capybara, North American beaver and the Cape porcupine.
