Mama?

.... He seemed to say...



Somehow the look on this little guy's face looks like wisdom. He was looking up at his Mama, not begging to be nursed, but just looking at her as if asking the square root of pi.

Who knows?

He may have a formula for working out the volume of a Big Horn?

Or, perhaps the truth about Higgs boson...
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: One never knows, do one?
Aww ever cute!! I'd keep it as a pet in my house wink
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Would be real sweet until it got to a certain size - I wonder if it would start head-butting everything in sight?

Apparently you have to almost blind not to have seen a big horn sheep in some places in the US and Canada. I've been to those areas and I've yet to see a big horn sheep sad

He's such a little cutie but to help him out in case Mama does not know it is 1.772453850905516027298167483314

I love the name Bearizona; is it an animal park or similar?
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: They're elusive sometimes! I'll pass on the info to Mama, but I'm pretty sure she already knows... and here's my post from a few days ago explaining Bearizona...
