Thanks Philip :thumbs_up:
Even if I was way off the real reason :slap:

Fact/Myth?
The man made waterholes has played a part in the 'non-existence' of Brown hyenas in Kruger National Park.


Guys go check out this link and helps dave our rhinos in our Brownie fundraiser...
Brownie Project
Will we see a Brownie in KNP?

I would say myth. Some of the water holes has closed as long ago as 1999, but I am yet to see a Brownie.

I agree with Rooies, Myth. Brown Hyenas needs very little water to survive.

O gatta pattatta :slap:
Ok so I say fact... Well done to the fact boys :w:
The waterholes that was put in by the Park has attracted more antelope like the zebra and willies which in turn brought a lot of predators aka golden kitty and the spotted hyena (of which is the biggest enemy of his bro mr brownie) so they have moved on to greener pastures :thumbs_up:

Nope I found Civet, Eland and Sable but no brownie. I think Camera traps or Scipio is the only way to get a photo of one. The normal Kruger visitor just does not spend enough time in the park to see the rarest of the rare. But then again I'm not the luckiest guy around. Have used it all up on the golf course so the chances of you finding one is much greater than mine. :thumbs_up:

Fact or myth, the red roman spider is a vicious insect and will chase humans when confronted with a flash light...

heksie, I don't want to argue with you unnecessary , but how do you explain all the Brownies in KTP. There are also lots of man made water holes, lions, leopards and spotties?

Wild guess Doc. I would say that although they are vicious, they will not charge at a human. If they run at you, it means that they are looking for shade or something more darker to hide than standing in the light of a torch. They will non actively hunt humans but will bite if provoked. The same with snakes.
