Now it would seem so according to my book called The Wildlife of Southern Africa. Do you beg to differ Jaz?

Zebras must certainly be the most confusing prey to any predator.

Rather not differ with you DB I am sure you are right. :D
As far as Zebras being a confusing prey they are not as large a prey as a buffalo.

You are absolutely right Vonnie and DB. Can anyone please tell me a bit about an aardvark?

Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park visitors recently had an unusual sighting, a dead aardvark being consumed by black-backed jackal, according to the KTP guru's recent post in the sightings thread. (Jannie is very dedicated, and is still posting sightings even when on holiday! :thumbs_up:)

Aardvarks are solitary, nocturnal animals that usually sleep in a hole that they fill in behind them. They can dig at an unbelievable rate. Three kinds are of holes can be distinguished:
1 - the hole in which they live and in which the young are born
2 - a temporary shelter
3 - a small excavation for the purpose of searching for food

Their teeth are poorly developed and they use their sticky tongues to catch termites.

They are seldom seen.

Nyala are very common in the Pafuri area of KNP & your chances of seeing them there is 100 to 0.

Kruger Park you say Jaz :P

Tshavandlopfu is a hill in the Kruger Park 19km north-east of Letaba. The name comes from the Tsonga word, (which means mountain of elephant) Ntshavandlopfu.

Uncommon as the Sharpe's grysbok is, it does occur near Punda Maria
