10 Most Beautiful African Animals

by Victor Uma



Today, as we join Google Incorporation in the celebration of Lucy, we decided to bring to you beauty straight from the African wild!

Lucy is the skeleton of a female of the hominin species Australopithecus afarensis discovered exactly this day in 1974 in Ethiopia by paleo-anthropologist Donald Johanson.


Now enjoy our list and remember to tell us which animal you think is the most beautiful of all and the one animal you think shouldn't be in the list!

And also honour dear Lucy by sharing this post. Thank you.

  1. The Royal python should not make the list, there is nothing beautiful about a snake. My people call is 'Nwadiana', you don't kill it and if per adventure you do. You must bury it with a casket and mourn it as you you will do a human being. I have never seen it done but our elders swear it use to be done.

    2. Hahahaha. I still maintain the Royal Python is a beautiful creature, an epitome of beauty, grace and peace.

    3. Dan please I beg to disagree the thing is irritating to say the least. The only thing that could be beautiful is when the skin is used as leather. That sure is nice. But the snake itself eel.

    4. Hahahaha. Victor please take down the snake. We even received a personal message asking us to remove it.
      I think many are just afraid of it, myself inclusive.
      I've seen it a couple of times and found it strange enough to watch. For long, though from a distance.

  11. Is an Elephant penis bigger than that of a Horse? curious to know pls

    ReplyDelete

    1. The horse penis is unique because it has a great elongating ability. I think of all land animals horses have the longest penis.
      But the elephant penis is larger and weighs much more. Think about a sugar cane plant and a wood pestle in comparison.
