Desert warthogs… Still 3 young ones looking pretty grown up now! I’m impressed as we have been plagued by hunting dogs!! Please note I use that word as far as the pigs, and other poor old creatures are concerned, that must live in complete fear when a group of these very highly dangerous hunters are around.. We are delighted with their very vocal presence..
Last night as I sat there under a crystal clear star studded sky on the top of Elkanto, BUT listening to the Parsaloi flood roaring down towards the Milgis.. We could hear it 15kms away, so a huge amount of rain up stream!! Very exciting!.. I was trying to think of a title for my next blog of ‘mums and babes’ all caught on the night cameras in the last month, below Elkanto…. Have a look at this little show !!!
Two little Caracal Kittens following mum… there were quite a few pictures of Caracals passing the camera so we can only hope that one of them is ours!!
Mum with 6 babes in tow..
We have 100s of this scene, but unfortunately the camera was upside down, and too high!!.. none the less we have one picture of a beautiful hunting dog pup, and mum..
I absolutely adore this one of the Porcupine, rushing along.. He was going so fast there was not a chance of a second shot!!
Each scouts radio call sign is an animal, and they have to learn about there specific animal and teach the rest at scouts meetings!! My call sign is ‘Eyaiye’ Porcupine in the Maa language, so I have have a special affinity with these wonderful animals!! so if any one out their has more to tell about this creature please do!!
Just a few more pictures of the months catch!!
Threatening!! Hes telling the camera to watch out!.. Come abit closer and I’ll prick you!
A beautiful portrait of a wild cat..
I reckon this has got to be a pretty fine specimen of a Desert Warthog!!
Stripy, standing high and beautiful
Finally Leo.. In pretty good shape I would say…
After the rain all around, this is what we woke up to this morning! A lovely wet Milgis Lugga..
This is what caused it!!
