I am back …

I am back in South Africa and I had a quiet drive at sunset on the reserve. I enjoyed my trip to Europe very much, but it is also good to be home!

WATERHOLE ADVENTURES

With my Little Mamba (Suzuki Jimny) I visited one of my favorite waterholes on Thanda Safari for a few hours. It is called Mbomvu Dam (which means Red Dam in isiZulu). And as you can see from the picture it is named after the red soil in the area.

Birds:

African Paradise Flycatcher

Dark-capped Bulbuls

Emerald-spotted Wood Dove

Common Waxbill

Having an itch on the belly …

… and attending to it in an unusual way 😊

Interesting facts: Elephants have prehensile penises. It is quite hard for for such a large animal to get into the right position for sex. So the required navigation and rhythmic thrusting work is done by the male member itself. A side benefit is that it can be used for scratching and swatting flies. And it is quite painful to watch as it is occasionally dragged along the ground. When not in use it is fully retracted into the body.

Blister Beetle …

Interesting fact: They are so called for their defensive secretion of a poison, called Cantharidin, which causes blistering of the skin. It is used medically to remove warts.

About 7,500 Blister Beetle species are known worldwide.
