Animals are always fun to see. In India there are animals all around you as you are walking the streets or riding down the road. Some are animals you expect to see and some are unexpected. Snake charmers can be found everywhere. This one was at the Pushkar Camel Fair.
And this is what it sounds like:

Cows are sacred and wander the streets freely. Early in the morning, cows walk around the village getting the first bread of the day from each family. They are harmless, but watch out for the horns when you pass them in a crowded street!
There are many species of birds to enjoy.
Monkeys are probably my favorite. They have such personality. My mom had two monkeys as pets.
I love the cows and the monkeys always make me smile, but monkeys and cows together are the best! Sometimes they share and sometimes they do NOT!
The cow would like some naan. The monkey is not interested in sharing.
Camels, camels everywhere at the Pushkar Camel Fair.
Of course there were horses too.
The camel symbolizes love. I love my family for sharing the world with me. There is still so much to discover and learn from other people and other places.
Love the animal pics.
Your blog is such an enjoyable way to re-live our time in India. The animals were indeed amazing! They were so calm. We walked past dogs and they paid no attention to us. I think we could write a book about the camels… But it was fascinating to see the elephants ambling down the streets, as well. I loved learning that they are protected – their work day is regulated. The white horse with the bright blue eyes and the interesting ears (that made a heart shape when they perked up) must have brought a great price at the auction! I’m sure many-a-groom will ride him to their wedding!
These pictures are great! I especially like the one of the cow and the monkey. That is so cool that camel symbolizes love.
It’s cool how the camel symbolizes love. I love monkeys so much because they are cool creatures. There are so many cool animals in India. The snake charmer video is very cool. What would happen if he turned on the man. Yikes.
The snake charmer must have been very cool!
I like the monkeys a lot. I agree that it is probably the best animal to see in India!
I love the camels! They’re so cute! !(^o^)!
I love the horses so much! They are so cute, did you know that the horse in the first picture is called an Ahal-Teke?This particular breed is known for having extremely shiny coat and arched ears that almost touch.
I really liked the monkeys because they are my favorite animals. What is your favorite animal.
I love monkeys too! My favorite animal used to be a turtle. Now I love hawks. What is your favorite animal?
These photographs are amazing! I love the different types of animals you included in your post. Especially the monkeys! I also think it’s really cool that your mom has 2 monkeys for pets!
My favorite animals are the horses (especially the dapple grey). They look like Akhal Teke, Kathiawari, and Marwari horses.
I’ve only ridden a horse once in Costa Rica on the beach. It wasn’t as easy as I thought it should be.
My mom went to high school in India. She got to work with Mother Teresa too. What is your favorite animal and why?
