What a nice initiative, SW and Flutterby! Great effort. :thumbs_up: Will be so nice to monitor Kamea and her pups here on the forum.

I wish I could have a decent sighting of WD's in KNP :pray:. We had a very brief sighting many years ago near BnD as a pack crossed the road at full throttle. As quick as they appeared, they disapeared. :cry:

(I also like the name Special K!)

Thanks for starting this thread, and for all of the great pictures of Kamea the Special K girl and her pups! We haven't seen Wild Dog at Kruger yet. Hopefully on our next visit we will see Kamea!

Hi all,

After a long while I checked the public gallery pictures and found this pic (taken by Paul Nixon on 29.09.2009 near Transport Dam)

I am not 100% sure if it is she but I think so…

Comments??

Hi SW - I'd say it's definitely her. :clap: There's that funny white squiggle at the top of her right front leg. Well spotted. :thumbs_up:

I started updating our maps for our July visit and found another two sightings of Kamea…

This one is posted in the public gallery by Danielle Scheepers near Skukuza on 5 January 2010

And then found this one on the forum, posted by Maiper (posted March 2010)

Hi

I believe Muhammad must have seen her and the 2 young ones on the same day as us - 5 December 2009. When we got there the 2 young ones was laying in the road and she was standing next to the road. There came a lot of OSV and they ( the wild dogs) set of back in Skukuza's direction. At a stage right into a herd of Impala. I will try and post pictures later today!

That was our second WD sighting in the park. Now that I know she has a name I'm very excited :dance: :lol:
