DDW Pic 1089. Blackbuck

While walking through the Maharajah Jungle Trek a few days ago, I noticed this herd of blackbucks grazing on a hillside. I've seen these animals many times, but didn't know much about them. So, as I always like to learn something new while in a Disney park, I decided to talk to the nearby cast member. It turns out that blackbucks are among the fastest land animals in the world, and can reach speeds of close to 50 mph! This is another reason why I love Animal Kingdom......there is so much to discover on every visit.
