    I think our sandal wood smuggler needs to take a lesson or two from verappan on the costume, red invites some trouble from the bulls in the jungle. ;)

    Bulls are colour blind.

    ^^ That is our belief. If bulls could talk then we will know for sure. I really doubt we are the only species that is able to distinguish colour.

    correction:- they can see color but they cannot see some specific colors

    A common misconception about cattle (particularly bulls) is that they are enraged by the color red (something provocative is often said to be "like a red flag to a bull"). This is incorrect, as cattle are red-green color-blind.

    Then why do the spanish bulls chase and knock down the matadors carrying red flags.

    Whoa. Munnar has given way to bullfighting here.

    I'll also pitch in :p. A bull charges at the flag , rather than the color.

    The instinct to attack something that is moving is why bulls charge at the flag. I think that is quite common with all animals. Then again, Biology is a science of exceptions! :D

    The munnar pics and travelogue has been very interesting to say the least!!

    Some one has to wave a black flag, white flag, red flag, green flag and blue flag at a bull and observe its reactions to each. :D

    Haha Sathya, We're all from the same team, Does that sound alright now?

    I did attempt shooting and couldn't hit even a single one whilst you were able to hit one.
