Hi there

Does anyone know why there is almost no water in the Satara "trough"? Will it just fill up slowly or have the elephants and buffalo which were there earlier, used it up.

Thank you

:yaya: Bush-Lady! I reckon all of it, plus the fact that the waterlevel was
quite low to start with and the zebras can drink huge amounts in one go as well.

I also wondered what had happened to the water. I wondered if something had stolen it like someone stole my computer last week. :evil:

Still can't work out if these are birds or insects :hmz:


They could be flying ants/termites, Mel. When they come out they are all over the place. :D

Love the way they are drinking from around the trough but still feel they must come to the waterhole even though there is so much water everywhere!
