There the “shots” go again. Surely it has to be in the audio system, maybe bugs hitting the microphones, because the animals make no move that they hear what we hear. Pray I am right.

sure hope you’re right, Terry. Yes, one would think the animals would be frightened. But there is and echo sound; don’t know why that is.

Those have got to be rifle shots. bigfrown

That’s what I thought but wouldn’t it have been reported to authorities by the person manning the camera? I keep thinking of the herd of elephant and their beautiful babies and the tusks. I do hope they are safe.

last night I saw a small animal that had a long tail with rings around it. it climbed a tree to a lower branch, looked around like hunting for something ,then jumped straight up to another branch with no effert at all. Can someone tell me what animal that is?

Was it the one that looked like a house cat with a really long tail from the back. the one who was sleeping just outside the fence at 6:20 pm EST? I’ve been trying to find out myself.

There it is again. I think it is an African Wildcat.

I think the southern african wildcat has stripes on the body and tail. Wasn’t a genet, was it??

The tail reminds me of a raccoon.

The croc just came out of the water, and dancing around curiously right in front of it – uh, hope this is not little Scoobert!

I watched this and was fascinated to see him walk out of the water and open his mouth as though to say “Come on, walk right in and I’ll swallow you right down”.

Looked terrifying, doesn’t it?
I got curious about this behaviour and tried to find out why crocodiles open their mouths so wide, apparently for no reason. Seems it’s their way of cooling themselves, like dogs pant.

Is that correct? I didn’t think it is still so hot at night…

And I mixed up both South African cams, Scoobert lives at the Djuma waterhole giggle

Pete: you need to attach a tracking devise on the croc and link it with it’s own camera so we can watch the croc at all times.

Oh yes please, great idea contentsmile
It is so interesting to watch how other animals nearby react, and even if I don’t exactly love the croc – it is a majestic animal, and it keeps the pond clean…

New camera, I read somewhere they were getting one, or new camera handler? Following the elephant herd through the bush was very interesting.

The croc is out of the electric fence and in the water again. Bedtime for me.

It has been 12 hours since I first saw the croc under the shelter house. I hope he isn’t hurt from the electric fence. He has moved around but can he get out?
