Look at my Earrings!

Impala

The birds, called oxpeckers, are actually there to help get ticks and bugs off the impala. This photo was taken in a Safari park in South Africa. The birds also eat earwax and dandruff (bet your mam’s shepherds pie doesn’t seem so bad now, eh?)

My family and I were lucky enough to spend some time in Zimbabwe when I was younger. The wildlife is truly amazing. One morning we woke up with a hippopotamus in our front garden!
