Hi Jan,

We never met warthogs in the Kgalagadi, I think the chances to see one are higher the more north one travels?
Your warthog looks more slim than the ones living in the eastern parts of SA, or is this just my imagination?

Thanks for sharing!


Best regards,

Rob

Thank you Rob for the comment... :dance: :dance:

Yip...we only saw them on one trip over the years...I think they look thin because food are not so plenty in KTP... :hmz:

Years back we never saw any Kudo's in KTP.......this Kudu image with the beautiful horns was taken 500m from TR gate....times are changing..... :hmz:

I don't know if it is epidemic but we have seen this kind of deformations several years ago for the first time. Maybe I can find some pictures but I will have to "dig deep" for this.

Best regards,

Rob
