On Saturday there was a Cheetah kill about 50m from the waterhole which was a recipe for some very good cam pics... here they are.

the cam pix you post are SO intriguing, Jannie 8) Did the hyena find the springbok remains IN the water?!? :shock: It must be quite some marathon to go thru all the pix, really appreciate your efforts! :clap: :gflower:

Hi Arks,

The hyena must have taken the scraps away from the Cheetah and due to all the jackal around it took it to the water where it has left it for a while before returning, i would guess it was to hide the scent and to make sure that the other predators around doesn’t get to it.

It has taken a while to decide which to post as there is just so much.
