Yesterday on Nossob I saw this:

There seemed to be something happening because people were shining lights so it must have been making alot of commotion. :huh:
It was blurry so it must have been moving quite fast.

Interesting! Maybe there were some 'mites in the hide so let's keep an eye on the KTP Trip reports! :D

Was no one watching the webcam at about 10 o'clock on saturday night? If you were did you notice two shapes and a lot of dust and occasional lights........ Well if you did, guess wat..... You missed out on one of the best sighting i have ever had..... Let me paint the picture for you, its 10 and dam cold, its just me and my brother sitting in the hide and we decide to leave, as we get to the gate we hear the strangest sound i have ever heard, so we run back to the hide and its two brown hyena's and they are fighting..... Not really fighting, more of a showing who is boss, the one has the other by the neck and wont let go, this went on for absolute ages before they both were so exhausted that they could barely stand up..... The one that got bit was bleeding but it was all superficil....... Will post a video when i get back to jhb.......
Warning: sensitive viewers do not watch the video.....
I try my best and that's what matters I hope.

Thanks Timbo. :clap: Shadowdog and I was discussing the ongoings at Nossob and according to her it also occurred Friday night. My comment was that "Spring must be in the air". Gonna watch the video.
Thanks again, it's so great. :clap:
