South African Wildlife Gallery

24th April 2007 - Whilst we saw the Big 5 in Kruger National Park, the photos of the leopard and lion are not clear enough to post on the web. I am now on a mission to make sure we see these again so they can be added to the gallery. We have seen many weird and wonderful animals, some we are not sure what they are, so if you can assist in indentifying them that would be great.

With a collapsable rib-cage these critters can squeeze into very tight spaces. We see 2, how many can you count?
