I continue to work through my hard drive and memory cards in search of my favorite shots. In this installment enjoy the Hippos, Rhino, Leopard, and Cheetah. I’ve also attached a video of an underrated and very critical critter…….
A Rhino and Cape Buffalo create an interesting alliance…..
A beautiful pose by ‘Xikavi’
A Wild Dog enjoys his reward from a successful hunt
Cheetah looking at potential target
A Hippo casts a cautious glance in my direction….
No Safari is complete without Elephants!
Cape Buffalo…in this case a ‘Dugga Boy’, or an old male that has been kicked out of the breeding herd…..Sound familiar?
In the following video, you’ll see Dung Beetles working a pile of Dung as they prepare to lay their larvae. The Beetles will lay their larvae in the dung, roll the dung into a near perfect ball and bury it. In about 2 weeks the larvae will hatch and emerge from the dung ball. The newly-hatched Beetle will live for about 2 years.
