Agree. Always a bad idea to try and milk a buffalo bull. Except for the one who cost R18 million?

Thanks for the image, IB ... I'll never forgot now how you look in real life. :twisted:

I agree with Oddesy (and grrraattteee to see you back on a quiz, Ods!!); not much of a ranger this oke, I suppose? He will need a lot more charms than he has at present.

You are out on a bush walk and your guide notices a burrow during the walk. He decides this will be a great thing to stop and show the guests and proceeds to tell them all about who makes the burrow and who may occupy it as well as lots of other very interesting information . It had rained the night before although during the dead of night so its not at the forefront of anyone's mind. There are a few flies buzzing around the entrance to the burrow and for the most part it looks abandoned as the guide notes there are no tracks and a few spider webs to one side. He then decides that for a bit of fun he will climb half in the burrow to make his point to the guests about how big they can actually be and to find a porcupine quill or two to show the guests.

Is this a good idea? :twisted:

No .
There may be an animal which is nursing its young who may not have exited the burrow after the previous nights rain .

Guides ... :doh: ... :lol:

Not a good idea ... because there IS something inside.

The reason:

Quote:

That is an indication that their taxi is still inside its garage. :twisted:

What I'm wondering is how this over-confident guide is going to find a porcupine quill other than in the other side to his front part? :slap:

After dusting himself and removing the excess quills, our dear khaki clad field guide seems to have learnt his lesson.

It is not long before he and his group spot two dark maned lion males sleeping in the sun some one hundred meters away. The lions are in the open and the wind is in the group's favour. After looking at the two males for a few moments, the guide decides to lead the group away to safety.

Is this the correct decision?
