The reason you cannot find a specific period for the musth, is because there is no such a thing. The period of musth is dependent on many different factors, possibly even some factors us humans are not aware of. Some include the health of the animal, status, climate, area in which the animal lives, ... Accordingly the period of musth vary tremendously.


:thumbs_up: :thumbs_up: Thanks for the great Info Imberbe :thumbs_up:

However I have an excuse... the nearest I get to wildlife is through the forums... you're a whole lot nearer; you could be in Kruger this weekend studying those elephants in person!!!! :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :


Hi Kathian, soooo wish I could be there this weekend (or as a matter of fact, everyday of the year!)

Imberbe - thanks for sorting this one out. Also noted that on some of the threads... :thumbs_up:

Hey all. I'll be away for a few days, so if there are any quizzes that has my name on them, please someone take the next question.

:naughty: But do not think that you can take chances now ... :twisted: I have asked the other mods to keep an eye here. :lol:

Enjoy! :dance:

Thanks - a man's gotta do what a man's gotta do! :twisted: :twisted:

As I said over on the Insect quiz, the weekend on the farm was good. Friday I was sitting in the open in the shade in front of a bush watching the animals, only "hiding" behind some grass, less than two feet high. At one stage the springbok were some 30 paces from me - such neat, clean little animals. You shoulda seen the heads come up in shock when I started speaking to them! But they still didn't know where I was and moved off to about 50 paces. Life is good. :mrgreen:

Something else.. We are not allowed to chat in the quizzes :rtm: , but in the Great Quiz Chat-room.

So perhaps we should get a code word for use in the quizzes - eg. GQC - that means go and check out a non-quizz remark in the GQC-room. How else will someone know that you would like to exchange an idea or two, but not relevant to the quizz itself? :hmz:

What's your views?

Yes, quite right, Bishop (see, already I'm agreeing), I realise that men (and women) prefer meek-and-mild ladies and thus I play the game... :twisted:

B3006, re your sheep question - typed a whole response and it is currently doing its rounds in cyberspace, it seems :hmz: In any event, wanted to tell you that for women to level the playing fields, and to 'get back', i.e. retaliate in a mischievous way, is a VERY POSITIVE and fulfilling experience! :mrgreen:

Now you see, I was GONNA say that, that getting back is standard practise for women, but then my superior gentlemanly behaviour towards the weaker sex got some sense into me for a change. :mrgreen: And Imberbe is not here to protect me!

Weaker gender? Weaker gender? Are you for real? :twisted:

Trust me, not even Imberbe will be able to protect you from a woman's wrath!
