Yes Timepilot!! Well done.

But... the largest biome in South Africa is not the grassland OR karoo biome!! It is in fact the savanna biome!!

Over to you please...

Thanks Anthony

Hokay, here goes:

When hunting buffalo, lion have an equal chance of making the kill as they do of being ‘treed’ or otherwise chased away.

Let's take a stab and guess true, though I wonder whether they're successful as much as 50% of the time. That is unless you speak of the prides that specialise in buffalo, which probably have a higher success rate.

Way to go odessy, you're IT. :thumbs_up:

Their "strike rate" is very low - 1 in 5 is probably about right.

I agree with Imberbe AND I learn't a new word (thought you'd made a mistake at first and spelt 'extinct' wrong - till I looked it up). :redface:

True or false and motivate your answer.

A large male elephant can loose up to 120 liters of water per day just through sweat.

I say false. The blood that passes through the large blood vessels in their ears as they flap them, enables them to keep cool.

Agree with Siobain. Elephant don't sweat. So they lose no water that way. But they lose a lot of heat through their ears.

Since he answered first I'll leave the floor to Siobain. (I still like answering more than asking! :twisted: )
