Animals are certainly adapted to tolerate temperatures.
There is no correlation according to me based on my sightings temperature wise,or animals which is more common in cold weather, with the exeption of aardwolf which are regularly seen during the colder months,at night.

Morning all :)
Well klipspringers plenty last night, the giraffes was a bit scattered in the area of Moonrock and Kukurasiep area.
Lot of scrub hare's as well, spotted eagle owl at the area of the Black Ridges and a genet in the Oranjekom area.

On my way back in the Kukurasiep area something looks funny,whitish and I wonder what it could be,O! just a giraffe lying down with the neck a bit twisted,almost look like these large predator snakes, and I thought to myself hope Malealea asked me not how many of those we had here :) .

Yeah! At last .... some more Augrabies night drive sightings! Thank you AG! :clap: :clap:

I have never seen a Klipspringer at night, believe it or not! Do they also stand on the rocks, or are they lying down? I suppose it depends whether they feel safe or not? :hmz: (Sorry if this is a silly question! :redface: )

@ hilda, we found this pair in the Oranjekom area, they was lying down, about 6m away from the truck,they stand up and move off.Not a silly question at all,only day light activity has been studied, based on my observations they still stand usually the males, in the earlier spells of the night then they eventually go lie down.
I have found 3 different paires on my way back and all of them was lying down.
