So there’s a ton of wildlife in Kuwait. No, I’m not talking about the falling down drunks who stumble into trash cans at embassy happy hours. I’m talking about actual fauna. Well, maybe not exactly wild in the deepest darkest jungle sense – more like wow, someone’s dinner is wandering around the streets. Meaning, there’s lots of livestock around but not back at the ranch – literally strolling across your driveway as you’re trying to get home after work.
Most recently one of our new neighbors have started letting their flock of ducks carouse the mean streets of Adan. They hang out on the corner, scrap with the local street cats a la West Side Story, and generally quack quite a bit. So, after snapping a few pics of the ducks I thought I’d try to dig up some of the old pics of local wildlife and post them all up here together. We’ve seen some interesting things in Kuwait. Hawks hiding under trucks, ponies in pickups, monkey’s riding on the side view mirror of cars, tomorrow night’s chicken dinner in the streets, pigeons being fatten for dinner (yup, they eat flying rats), sheep tied to the front stoop – short of giant condors we’ve probably stumbled across it over here. So, enjoy the pics.
