Not sure if this has been done already but did not find anything on my search so Mods if it has please move/link.
I was wondering what peoples thoughts and animals would be in a list of Kruger Animals similar to the "Bird Five" list found here

We all know the
Big Five
Elephant
White Rhino
Buffalo
Lion
Leopard

And then we’ve got the
Little Five
Elephant Shrew
Rhino Beatle
Buffalo Weaver
Ant Lion
Leopard Tortoise

What would your choices be for the others?
My thoughts are:
Special Five
Cheetah
Wild Dog
Honey Badger
Caracal
Serval

Smallest Five
Suni
South African hedgehog
Dwarf Mongoose
Bat-eared Fox

Impossible Five
Brown Hyaena :hmz: :lol: :lol:
Black Rhino
Pangolin
Aardvark
Cape Clawless Otter
Sable
Roan

Does it have to be KNP animals ?

Does it really have to be National Parks Board conservation areas ?

There are MANY animals out there that are hardly if ever referred to in the forums :-

Blue Duiker and Samango sometimes get attention.
Black Wildebees ?
Bontebok ?
Mountain Reedbuck ?
Grey Reebuck ?
Oribi ?
Cape Grysbok

Nice thread JN.

It is subjective, as I would not have sable on impossible, desirable or rare yes.

@ Bushfairy,

I really like your nocturnal five, but can I add one Animal?
- Genets (Large and small spotted)
- Caracal
- African Civet.

I know that is not a 5 anymore :wink:
