      Love seeing photo's like these. You look close there? Was it a similar barrier that is behind him?

      COOL SHOT!!:D I love it- Whipsnade at its best...

      That is definately 'Manik', he was the 2nd (and last calf) of the original pair Mohan & Mohini. He was born in that 'garage- like' shed or the one next door. After Mohan died they had the mother/son pair for many years without any further breeding. Manik was a very tall bull if I remember.
