These are gregarious, shy creatures with fair sight, poor to good hearing and a good sense of smell.
When persued and wounded they are very dangerous!

    Awesome capture Margaret and very dangerous when stirred up. The one on the left appears to have a very good set of horns. I hope to get there one day with the camera. Wayne
