I once saw this poor young zebra with a funny looking "thing" growing on his head. You could see that it was irritating him a lot as he shook his head about 10 times per minute to get rid of it. It was really bad seeing it but that is nature and nature will sort itself out!!

:clap: :clap: :clap: Nice pics, although sometimes with a sad angle.

The poor zebra - one ugly tumor/growth, SW. Shame.

We've often see tail-less lions in the Park!

One of my favorite things to do when visiting a park is to ask ranger or guide whats one of the most unique or one of there best sightings. There replies normaly of something amazing for example when visiting kgalagadi a guide told me about a pangolin crossing the road right infront of him only to have its head bitten of by a lion. I thaught it would be a good idea for us to share some of our most unique stories and sightings, may it be your own or one you have heard of.

Hi there

We were in the Kruger Park around June 16 and spotted a strange looking antelope in the Berg en Dal / Malelane area. It was about the size of a Duiker and completely white except for light brown markings around the ears and brown eyes. Please let me know how to upload photos, must be blonde but I can't figure it out! Would love to have this identified. Just hope its not a goat that wondered into the Park - that would be a real anti-climax!

Most uncommon sighting?

I've seen a brown hyena in mid Kruger in 2004 crossing the road in front of our car, while the others were watching some lions far away in the back.

No pics, sorry.

From what I gather you are one of the very few, and very lucky, ones that have seen brown hyena in KNP.
Do you remember the position/route you were on?

I'd go for a goat, the only animal that might just look similar is an albino impala. I noticed it has horns.
