Met vergunning van Theuns Naude!/With permission from Theuns Naudé!

Hierdie pragtige foto's deur Theuns Naude by Dikbaardskolk in die Kgalagadi geneem!
Pasop en kyk rond voordat jy hier uitklim! Daar's dalk 'iemand' anders voor jou in die toilet!/These beautiful pictures by Theuns Naudé taken at Dikbaardskolk in Kgalagadi! Careful and look around before you alight from your vehicle! There could be "someone" else before you in the toilet!

Great sighting and images :clap: :clap:

Now I understand why my wife is always waiting in the car and send me to first inspect the toilets before she make a move... :hmz:

All is fine if you can see the predator while still in your vehicle! My biggest concern is when you go inside and then see the predator! I'll just drop dead! :wink:

These predators are not what one might have in mind nor the waterhole!!

But don't dare leave open the kitchen door or they will be in there looking for food!!!
