Heksie you are IT again.

That is the reason they are primeraly found in the north. The camps they were kept in to breed before releasing them are in the huge human free area north of Shingwedzi.

:hmz: So, Heksie, does the question ask about bee-eaters in general or specifically carmine bee-eaters?

Running out of questions? :shock: Perhaps we shouldn't answer so quickly. :hmz:


Myth. The secretary bird does eat snakes, but many other living things too. So, snakes is not its main diet.
