Thank you, frisian! :gflower: That was basically all that I needed. :thumbs_up:

A beautiful photo regarding the affection but the both of them
don't look all too happy nor too healthy. :? Mr. Handsome looks
as if he was limping? (Right hind leg)

Where did you take this photo? Just outside Nossob?

Now with that photo telling me with 99% certainty that I
did not capture Mr. Handsome nor his brother in October
at Nossob waterhole, I wonder if it is possible that there
are more or less 4 adult males in the greater area.

Does anybody have any information regarding that?
Could it be that the Nossob brothers were dethroned by
some younger males?

Yes, from the birdhide.

Here are some more photos out of the birdhide

I bought my copy in 2007.

As far as I can remember it was a printer here in Upington that printed the book??


Thank you

This is a very exciting topic! I am sure you have all heard of OUSUS. She is/was (don't know if she is still alive) a female lioness who frequented the Bedinkt waterhole in KTP.

Piet Heymans wrote a book about her "Ousus van die Kalahari" and she was identified by her whiskers. I am not sure, but it was something dot-dot-space-dot.

I cannot find a lot on internet...I am sure the KTP staff will know much more about OUSUS!



LUV THE PHOTOGRAPH! Thank you for sharing!

Hey everyone! I'm sorry to have to say this, but unless you already have an Ousus book, you will not find it in the KTP shops. There was only a limited number of prints and it seems that Oom Piet does not see the need to have more printed. However, since my Grandpa :wink: is such a softie...you can try to convince him otherwise. You can also send him some of your own Ousus pics, he will love to correspond with you!! (Piet Heymans: ph38@mweb.co.za)


Hi KleinKedawer :)
Do you know where I could obtain a secondhand copy of the book, OUSUS written by your Grandpa?
I have read the book (a work colleague gave it to me to read). Now I would like to get a personal copy of the book. Looking forward to your reply and possible help/assistance in this regard. HELP! HELP! HELP!
Regards. Sheleph
