Sable side view

Is it just me, or does this sable appear to be grinning?



  1. Definitely a smile. Your photo also highlights the sharpness of those horns–you could put an eye out with those things (or worse).

    • I agree, Mike. The first sable I posted had a very serious, almost somber expression, but this one appears to have a sly grin!

      I was impressed by the variety of horns on the African grazers, and I’ll be posting more in the weeks to come. I guess if you have to try to defend yourself against a variety of predators, and you wind up in fight mode instead of flight mode, they come in handy (along with sharp hooves!).
