Yala National Park
In Sri lanka it is common to see wild animals crossing the road as one is trying to pass. You might not think much of this, but when you see a elephant crossing at his pleasure you don't want to piss it off. Traveling back and forth from Colombo to Arugam Bay you typically see elephants, monkeys, monitors (large lizards), water buffalo, cows walking right down the street or hanging out in town.
The wildlife here is amazing. Dan got some great shots from Yala National Park:
Green Bee-eater. These suckers can run.
Monitor (Big Lizard they can get 5 to 6 feet long)
How many crocodiles do you see?
Painted Stork with Egrets
Now how many crocodiles do you see?
Water Buffalo with white egret sitting on him
Bird in Tree
Yes it is a leopard and we were lucky to see one.
This leopard was just walking down the road, hanging out and stopped by our car.
What a look...
Pink Painted Stork
Lots of Storks hanging out in the trees.
Elephant most likely a young male, they hang out alone.
Up close and personal.
Crossing watch out.
