Fact or myth? The country of Israel is roughly (more or less) about the same size as the Kruger National park.

Fact. If my sources are correct, then Kruger is in fact bigger than Israel.

If you add the private reserves bordering Kruger (The greater Kruger park) then yes :thumbs_up: You are IT :D

Israel is 2,7mil ha. Kruger itself just less then 2mill ha and adding those bordering reserves you pretty much get to 2,7 mil ha if not more.

I think that is a mythical believe originating from the ancient krugarian folklore.......

Goeie genade, 4 pages of nonsense :roll: The answer is, it is a myth. Mice per se do not scare elephants. Mice are part of an elephant's environment, whether it is in the wild or in a zoo. What does scare them is anything that startles them like a sudden movement or noise. So, it may sometimes appear if they are scared of mice.
