Yes it is amazing that in whole Park (about the size of Israel) the hippo walked in front of the little area the cam covers! Quite a 'high'! That is why we watch an empty cam for hours - for those highs!!

The cam is moving forward at half real time at the moment! (Allows for a lot more multi tasking!! :wink: )

Wow, a hippo. 8)

Is the cam stuck at 5.25 or is it catching up in super slow motion?

Oh boy, let's hold thumbs then! :lol:
Thanx for the hippo pic! 8) It really incredible what we're getting on the cam, considering that it's right by a gate and the size of the park.

It's really good to be back, having time to read through carefully not rushing off somewhere. I can relax in the forum. 8)
