Re: Pangolin sightings in KNP?

Two Pangolin sightings; one near Berg en Dal at dusk in July (2010), and one near Lower Sabie in January of 2011, middle of the day, go figure! We were showing two French colleagues around, the next day we found a leopard in the middle of the road about 500 metres from the gate at Lower Sabie. I'm starting to think there might benefits to showing Europeans the sights in the KNP!

I saw one in June 2000 on my first morning hike on the H2-2 road (Voortrekker road). We were watching something else when we spotted it. When the other animals ran off, it rolled up and the guide took us right up to the Pangolin. I have some nice video footage of it... Then I saw a youngster that had been caught in a snare, but that was outside the Park.

The doggies I have seen a few times on the S25 within 10km of the turn off from the tar road.
