Aardvaak at Nossob

Unread post by impyim » Sun Mar 17, 2013 2:48 am

Did anyone else think that the sighting on the webcam (Nossob) at 21.56 hrs on 16 March submitted by Foxy was an Aardvaak. I've never seen one on the webcam before.

G'day impyim! :D :D

And a big welcome to the wonderful world of SANParks webcams :clap: :clap: :clap:

I just had a look back through the Nossob sightings and I think what you saw was a brown hyena 8) 8) 8)

But gosh, I would LOVE to see an aardvark on the cams!! :pray:

Hope to see you on the cams again soon :thumbs_up:
But careful, you just might get addicted..... :lol:

Too late I'm already addicted. We're in Kruger for our second visit this August. Our last was in 2008. 18 days. Can't wait. In the mean time I'm on the forum website and esp. the webcams all the time.

Hi impyim :yaya:

Glad to hear you're enjoying the cams as much as so many others :D

I think Mel was right - 'Brian' the brown hyena was there at Nossob last night... I presume this is what you were referring to:

Here he is with a bit more light on the subject...

You're right, Vinkie, it was a cat.

I saw the first pic Melph posted and that looked caracal-ish as it approached the trough - and it is quite a large cat. Mel had also posted a video clip and you can see on that it's definitely a cat. :( though.

Could be wrong though.


This is the video captured by Melph68,

Does look like a AWC to me too, but I am no expert :roll: ,

:hmz: Caracal have a 'short' tail.

AWC?

The more I look at the video, the more it looks like an AWC, but the tail bothers me..
Whatever (according to BB): "You are correct but I don't want to admit it".

Spotted Hyena at the water.

Blue Wildebeest walking away.
I live in my own little world. But it's okay they know me here.
