I could say that I posted this picture because of the important news that an international conservation treaty has been signed to preserve the saiga antelope, which is threatened both by demand from the market for traditional medicine, and by a disease that killed about 12,000 of them in Kazakhstan earlier this year.
But really, it's just an excuse. This blog can't have too many pictures of saiga antelope, don't you think?
