We are working on the lizards emancipation - for those who are watching, there are four lizards inside the webcam! We don't know how they got in as the unit is sealed.

Hi Vinkie, that was a brown hyena

Anne-Marie, that was a jackal. Black-backed to be precise :D

I would love to know what is in the water at Nossob. The jackals seem to be interested but are not doing anything. PietV :pray:

All the animals are looking at it?


I think it must be a dead something. The BBJs have been milling around all day looking at it!

If it is a dead animal they will(so maybe it's not an animal but a rock :roll: ), :D but we still don't know what is in the water :hmz:
