Just an ear

  • NJ_Alison by NJ_Alison

    What do you do when there is just an ear that pops into view?

    You can make a guess based on the height and shape of the ear; this is a fairly tall animal since the head is up near the top of the camera, but not as tall as a giraffe. In this case I guessed zebra, which seems to be right, based on this capture from 2 minutes later: ASG000po5s

    Don't worry, you get more familiar with things like ear shapes the longer you classify. 😃

    Thanks - I am frequently mystified, but am still pretty new at this.
