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.

Vultures and Drone!

This morning I had an excellent vulture sighting at Thanda Safari. At least fifty of these large birds were feeding of a Zebra carcass.

After I took lots of pictures with my cameras I tried to take some images with my drone. To my surprise the vultures ignored this ‘small bird’ and I was able to capture some interesting material from the air.

Imagine …

… enjoying a freshly made Espresso or Cappuccino on a safari in the South African wilderness after an exciting Lion sighting. What a day!

Just one of the special treats using the Green Mamba (my very special Safari vehicle) at Thanda Safari.
