Mattibs thanks for your comments. :thumbs_up:

Raptor142,

What lovely photos of the young wildebeest, zebra, ostrich chicks and baboon mother with baby.
The wildebeest looks like a new born. 8) :dance:

Eagle owl,

I am glad you got it right to add photos from Flickr. :dance: I love your shot of the lions playing in the tree. :D The hyaenas look so peaceful, just like ones own dogs sleeping. :wink: The giraffe must be quite young. I read that a new born is~1,5 m tall and falls from a height of 2 m when it is born.

Michel367,

Nice photo of a leopard cub in the tree. :thumbs_up: It looks as if the mom is holding on to an impala kill. :)

The photo's below of wildebeest calves where taken in KTP near Nossob during Dec. This is a great time to see these young one, but it can get quite hot during that time of the year.

The first pic was taken at Kwangpan. During summer flocks of Abdim's stork visits KTP and can be seen at the water holes in large number. The wildebeest calf do not look older than a few days.

Calves having some fun away from the herd.

Son godin - there were actually two little ones, both with umbillical (I hope that is right.. :hmz: ) cords. Although they might seem to share my height...in the wild against their parents you can see how small they are...they were just too adorable...just like the baby wildebeest in your lovely shots. :)

M367 - how lucky can one be to see leopard mom and cub???? I do not even see adult leopards as much as I would love too, how about a young cub!!... :huh:

@ Songodin

Yep. You are right. They were in a tree about 10 - 15m1 from the road with an impi kill.

The Baby Giraffe will fall from that hight so that the ambilical cord can break and the baby's heart can start going.
Here is a photo of a mom that just gave birth

@ Eagle Owl

I just love every sight of a leopard.
It has been way too long since I have seen one. :?

M367 - Nice shot of the mom giraffe after labour, however, where's the newborn? :|

Here's one of some hungry chicks that SO took at Letaba. He loves wandering around looking for small things and came across this feeding scene...

Very nice pic of the Red winged Starlings.

We saw that mom walking near Satara and no calf in sight and we suspected that she gave birth during the night and some predator took the baby. :?

Eagle owl,

Thanks for your nice comments on the baby wildebeest. Your SO got a great shot of the starlings. :thumbs_up: It must be quite difficult to capture them without chasing off the mom and lots of patience.

Michel367

Your baboon catching a ride is classic and looks full of mischief :) Sad to hear about the baby giraffe. :(

We saw a troop of baboon at the Kanniedood hide near Shingwedzi. The liitle one clung on to his mother for dear life and looked as if he is hurt on his back.
