Can't think of any mammal with that description; or is it a description of a particular animal's behaviour, Pilane.

Does this perhaps refer to the first wildebeest to attempt a river crossing, Pilane?

Okay so seeing as though this quiz hasn't been active in a month I hope you all don't mind if I post a question.

1. What do you call the occasional dietary craving of bone?
2. Name one herbivore in KNP that is often seen chewing on bones.

Osteophage is the term used.
Imberbe = Combretum imberbe = Leadwood = Hardekool = The spirit of the Wildernis!
