Buff-crested Bustard (Lophotis gindiana)
The Buff-crested Bustard is a small-sized bustard native to the scrublands of eastern Africa. Bustards are known for having elaborate courtship displays. The Buff-crested Bustard male will often perform a variety of aerial and acrobatic moves, sometimes reaching nearly 100 feet in the air.
The beauty and genius of a work of art may be reconceived, though its first material expression be destroyed; a vanished harmony may yet again inspire the composer, but when the last individual of a race of living things breathes no more, another heaven and another earth must pass before such a one can be again. - William Beebe, 1906
We depend on our programs & donations to help fund the care and housing for our animals, most of which are either rescues or surrenders. We seem to be always taking in new animals that need a home or different situation, their care adds up. If you would like to help support Animal Wonders, it would be greatly appreciated. We are always in need of donations, caging material, lumber, crates, aquariums, straw, & newspapers.
