Looks more like a Spotted Hyena to me. Have see a lot more Hyena's than waterbucks at night from the cam... then again I mostly watch the cam at night since I live in Australia. :)

This is a quiz that is run exclusively from material retrieved from the SanParks Webcams.

Any photo from the webcams can be posted, and a question generated related to that photo! Lets not just ask identification questions!

Open Quiz rules apply!

1. Why do giraffes bend their knees while drinking?

2. What prevents a giraffe from feinting when bowing down to drink?

Well Giraffe's have ,much like our own, a valve in their neck that prevents blood from rushing to their brain.

As for bending I can only presume that for in order for them to actually get to the water they have to either spread their front legs or in this case bend it.

Q1. Yes. :clap: Simply put, their legs and body combined are longer than their necks. They have to bend, since their necks are not long enough to reach the ground (water) from a standing position.

Q2. Kinda! But there is a more important reason ...

:huh:
