Hi there,

I belive the Fauna of Afrika are like Gases they can be seen everywhere. Because they wander huge distances. In addition to do a great monitoring can be very difficult. Therefor I belive that Brownies might live in Kruger.
according to that Link, we are dealing with a borderline Topic.

I Have done the experience, That I saw species which shouldn´t live in that Area, if my books were correkt. Therefor expeckt the unexpeckt.

I mean let the Mythos life, that makes the visit to Kruger even more exciting.
Best Regards
Malealea

Perhaps someone may photograph :cam: one of the Kruger Brown Hyenas for us this December :hmz: even if it is just the tail end as they are elusive and quick to vanish :hmz:

OK, I respect the person who saw one.

Now after umpteen years, there must surely be a sighting that can be photographed, like we see regularly in Kgalagadi.

One possibly vagrant sighting, doesn't mean they are resident in Kruger.

Let's see how long it takes for the next one.

I see all and sundry getting excited on the other thread, but why?

When YOU see one......
