Turkey Animals

Today I have been thinking about a trip I took to Turkey in 2014. I will be using some images from my trip in a class on Wednesday. I will not share the pictures I will use on Wednesday until after the class.

However, I started to think of some of the animals I saw in Turkey.

Cattle in Turkey - Cattle herder - Herd of Cattle - Ankara RegionHere is a herd of cattle out near Hattusha. We had just passed through an area of red hills that made me think of where I lived while growing up in Kansas.

Shepherd, Turkey, Hattusha, Hittite CapitalWhile at Hattusha, the Hittite Capital, we saw a large flock of sheep.

Kangal Dog, Guardian Dog, Turkey, Anatolian ShepherdThe herd of sheep was guarded by a couple of Kangal dogs. This dog is also known as the Anatolian Shepherd.Camel - Rock Houses - CappadociaIn Cappadocia we saw several camels including this one that was used as a backdrop for group pictures.

Turkish Man on Donkey - Cattle Herder - LystraWe saw a man on a donkey near Lystra, he was helping herd sheep.

Did I see any turkeys in Turkey?

Male Turkey, Gobbler, Turkish Turkey, Thanksgiving, Native American BirdWe did see some turkeys in Turkey.

I could probably do another post on the birds and bees of Turkey. Maybe soon.
