380: Pigeons bathing
When I was living in Belo Horizonte, most of the residences where I stayed were pretty close to the campus of the Federal University. During the weekends, I stayed in the campus for some hours. I enjoyed many walks along the various faculties that are spread over the vast campus area. Most of the area is forested, and many locations have restricted access. However, you can still see many savage and domesticated animals. One day, I suddenly met a giant lizard, a teiju, of which is told that it can act very aggressive. I also have observed many little monkeys there, playing with each other, high in the trees. And many pigeons, like this pigeon couple that had been taking a bath together, and were taking some rest until their wet feathers have dried. They remained unmoved when I approached them silently: they were really used to humans in their presence.
