Granger and his Pet Vulture
Original Acrylic by Thom Ross. 42" x 62"
During their time exploring the Gobi Desert, the men befriended many animals. Granger had two red-billed crows as pets. Shackleford had a pet hedgehog. They also adopted an antelope, some eagle chicks, and a wild donkey. Andrews found a baby vulture and that became his pet. The bird, named Connie, was quite adept at communicating with Andrews; often yanking on Roy's pant leg to indicate that he wanted water!
