Odd how that line comes and goes. No sign of it at the moment, but it does appear at times during the day now, as well as being a major distortion much of the night. But I still find it peculiar that it is no consistently annoying.

I can't make out what that could be - maybe a sheep from outside the Park that is not going to last too long inside the Park :lol:

Does not look like hyaena or any cat - has such thin legs.....

Really has me puzzled - those are hyaena ears. But the thick legs/fat body :?: Hyaena and lion are normally easy to id so close to the cam.

We really need Tabs here to help us out.....

First thing that came to my mind was: holy $%#@ is that a cow? :lol:
Think some of the background is distorting the contours of the animal but when I look at the ears I'll still say hyaena. Hunting for frogs. :lol:

Still looks like a nice woolly sheep to me :redface: with round ears....

Think you are right there Jose - I have just had a look at a photograph of a hyaena (I usually use the drawings in my KNP to refer to the animals) and see they do have thinish legs.
