Is this the very sick lame lioness? I want to cry every time I see her - very sad that she has to suffer so. :cry:


This looks like the same one we have seen twice before :hmz:

Kgalagadi Guru(Jan Kriel) said that she has probably got Tuberculosis :( ....she looks skinnier than the last time we have seen her.... :cry:

This doesn't look very good...she looks very sick.

Can anybody figure what its lurking in the water trough for the last while? Too indistinct to figure it, and I think it must be too friendly to be hyena (which does this kind of thing often) - other animals are coming to drink quite comfortable.

(Sorry - not sure how to get images from webpage into a post yet! ) :redface:

Thanks for posting the pic- then I saw it climbed out: definitely eagles, I think a martial eagle?

Yes, I have the bird book out and have been trying in vain to narrow it down but it was a BIG bird of some kind. Got a reasonable look as it climbed out of the water and stood up next to trough BUT just not clear enough to tell :? it stayed right in the water for some time.....

Agree with hyena. Have seen a hyena coming to the satara trough at night often lately.

Is it true that the darker the spots the older the giraffe is?

The coloration darkens with age I have been told :whistle: , it has also got to do with the species some have lighter or darker spots. :D
