BABY WILDEBEEST MISTAKES A CAR FOR ITS MOTHER
When young, wildebeest have poor eyesight but have a good sense of smell and hearing.
This young one, in the Kruger National Park, South Africa, somehow separated from its mother and it started following a tourist’s car. Perhaps the sound of the vehicle’s engine sounded similar to the mother? The height of the vehicle is almost the same as an adult wildebeest, that could have played a part in confusing the poor little one.
