The hyena must have taken the scraps away from the Cheetah and due to all the jackal around it took it to the water where it has left it for a while before returning, i would guess it was to hide the scent and to make sure that the other predators around doesn’t get to it.

It has taken a while to decide which to post as there is just so much.

Thanks for the explanation, Jannie, most interesting! And I'm sure it's hard to decide what pix to post (I also loved the UFO 8) ), it's really fascinating to see the activity that your cams capture. Thanks!

Its a pleasure.

Last week I took a chance and put one cam up at Rooibrak, left it there for a week........and I must say what’s going on there at night exceeded my expectations. Unfortunately I’m going away for a week :clap: . Taking the Community team to Cape Town to go and see the sea as some of the (90%) of them have never been to the sea nor swim in it. So this will be an experience on its own will take pics and come and post it.

So unfortunately you will have to wait another week before I can post those pics.

KG have a great time in Cape Town. You should think of bringing your Community members to West Coast Nat Park. I'm sure one of the rangers would not mind taking you sightseeing; and the Atlantic ocean is quite dramatic along the western coast, to see the huge waves.

Birthdays are good for you - the more you have, the longer you live!
