Trust me, nothing to brag about if you are staying in a Stoepid Seven Dwarf Men Freezer Tent, Baas Boom. :| :|


Perhaps not, but with nature working in such wonderful ways, who knows but the lions. Thanks for volunteering to ask them next time. But remember to first whisper 'sweet nothings' in his ear. :twisted: :lol: :lol:

I did the whispering thing once, but SHE was not impressed. :roll:

Another one:

You are walking through a rather thick section of bush. You can't see any animals but you notice that there is black rhino activity. What did you notice to tell you that there are black rhino around?

You noticed the following:

1. Black Rhino tracks
2.
3.
4.
5.
6.
7.

Start filling in the other things you noticed.

I will compile the list as people enter correct answers. The person filling in number 7 is IT.

Sorry Wildlover. After reading my question again, I realised that is was a bit vague. I have edited my question a bit, just to make it clear that I want you to tell me the possible signs which would indicate the proximity of Black Rhino.

steaming dung on a rhino midden (you know that this is a black rhino midden as the matter is course indicating a browser rather than a grazer) :tongue:

I'm not sure if I'm allowed to just carry on answering, but anyways, here it goes... (shout at me if I'm not allowed please oom boom)

You see a stump which is smooth and rounded at the top, you approach it and feel it and it's warmer than the rest of the stump, this means that a rhino has used this as a scratching post (but then again, not sure how you'd tell whether it was a black or white rhino :hmz: )

I noticed where they had rubbed their horn against a tree trunk and sprayed bushes, and heard the sneeze like snort.
