Myth - Springbok prefer open arid lands and avoid areas with tall grass, so i would say Kruger habitat is not suited for Springbok.

Since this is an OPEN QUIZ.... and for almost 3 months nothing happened here.... I'll try to revive it again with an easy question.

Where does the name Crooks Corner come from? (Why is Crooks Corner called Crooks Corner??)

Was'nt it a bit of a "Dead" area between three countries / colonies which was inhabited by ner-do-wells?

Because it borders on three countries, it was a favourite place for criminals to hide out; police and other law-keepers in the late eighteen hundreds and early nineteen hundreds were not allowed to cross into neighbouring territories in pursuit of criminals.
