Animals at play

Playful, exuberant and just plain fun, featured here are three of my favourite animal species playing.    So why do they engage in these exuberant displays – what do they gain or do they do it just because it feels good?  All the scenes exude good humour – a relaxed sense of just goofing around.   It was a delight to watch all their antics.  Play benefits healthy development of young animals both physically and mentally – helping them to get to grips with their spacial environment and building up dexterity and strength.

    1. They all have rich and complex social hierachies, i enjoy observing their rank and the interaction within the different families. Yes giraffes are rather quirky, but so perfectly adapted to their habitat 🙂
