Sable calf

Sable calves are much lighter colored than the adults.  If you look at the images of the adult sables from the last two days, you’ll see that they’re a very dark brown.  But this calf is more auburn-colored, so that it blends into the grasses and brush better, because it doesn’t yet have the formidable horns of an adult with which to defend itself.
