It's a matter of integrity, if someone says that they saw a species which they did not then they are only fooling themselves.


The thing is that I don't know how do these animals look, and i was trying to dare someone, so they uploaded the picts... :tongue:

:? This is not fair, I have not seen any one of the above. Over how many years has it taken to see the elusive eleven ?

Until reading this forum had not heard of the Elusive Eleven. I have now added them on my list of must see. I have seen some but not in SANP parks

Let the quest begin

Got them all - it's one of the great perks of being a jeepjocky/boatjocky/footjocky. I get to be out there all the time. I must admit though I've only had a few sightings of each over the whole 33 years (this is minus 10 aberrant years spent as an Interior designer when I could only visit) I've lived in the bush. I have had sightings of all in San parks but my most recent serval was not so I can't make you all green with envy. I do have a (probably not pure) black footed cat named Bonsai who shares my life (a pet she is not).

I won't know what it is, but when I'll be back, I'll send it to you to help me...

See you soon!

Have seen all except the Porcupine.

But, how is this for a sighting? We saw the LESSER CANE RAT, in the camp at Punda Maria with the Civet on it's heels, hunting the Rat next to our safari tent!
