I would guess it was having a rest. We do see impala lie down fairly often when driving around, just taking the load off. You will always see one or two keeping an eye open for danger.

I see in the Mammals list for the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park there is a Grass Climbing Mouse - should this not be a Gray Climbing Mouse ?

welcome to the forum JanG :D

according to my book, there is 4 species of climbing Mice :
Nyika - Grey - Brants's - Chesnut

:hmz: it seems there is no Grass climbing Mouse

Hi, Could anyone tell me what causes damage around the edge of the ears of Wid dogs.

Thanks bondm

Wild dog is not listed in the mammal index?

Thanks for your replies - I thought it might be due to some mite or other insect.

I know that notches are put into the ears of rhino for ID purposes.

Thanks Arks for the link - I had just looked for Wild Dog and not the full name.

All the best

bondm
