You don't get nyala in KTP, do you? :hmz:

What about humans? :mrgreen: My mom is smaller than any of her nine children, and my wife is not far from being overtaken by her 15 year-old, with the next one following close on his heels. :twisted:

:hmz: Right now off the bat I cannot think of anything else where the male is significantly larger than the female such as with nyala. But then, the small things I don't know too well at all... :wall:

No Nyalas there, bishop. Humans would count.
But there is another animal, it's not a small one.

How old is the larger one, when it is bigger than the mother?

Could be a leopard mother with a male of-spring. Leopards are solitary, and mostly you will only see the mother with one off-spring, like the samevloeiing leopard. :huh:

The African Wild Cat is the fastest maturing cat and is independent at 5 months and fully grown by a year, making the male larger young larger than the females?

Or is this too small for what you are thinking about? Is it a mammal by the way?

No AWC.

She has only one young, rarely two.
Males may be twice the size of females.
The young staying with the mother can be far larger than the mother.

I think Honey Badger is a species with males much larger.

Thanks, Toko

In the KTP species list you find Wild Dogs:
http://www.sanparks.org/parks/kgalagadi ... ammals.php" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

So what about the Wild dogs in KTP:
Is there a resident population?
Has there ever been a resident population?
Are there recent sightings
?
