Interesting info that I didn't know --

Elephants get six sets of teeth during their lifetime. The new teeth don't grow in underneath the old teeth like ours do but grow in from the back of the jaw and move to the front to push the old ones out.

My computer is acting up today -- everything is freezing badly Cry Hanky so I'm going to re-boot and see if that fixes it. Be back soon (I hope :-)

Edited to add:

Well I'm back but my computer is still as slow as molasses. I have things I have to do on my computer so I'm turning off the forum and the cam :cry1: and hopefully that will speed things up!

TTFN Pat and all you lurkers out there Out

Then a lovely thing happened - the baby didn't like it so deep - so Mum and some auntiescame all the way back and walked around the dam with baby!
They tried again at a shallower part.

Thanks for the ellie pics, Pat Left thumb up

Woo hoo! I just brought up the cam and I see LEOPARD!!! Not sure who the leopard is but Tara is presenting and I don't know who is on the cam. Tara mentioned that Yambilu-Jordaan was there.

Wow!! She just yelled out that there are four leopards together Wooh Haven't seen them yet but I'll have to review the archives later to find out what was happening before I brought up the cam.

Tara just said that Karula is hunting a duiker. Incredible!! Now I can see Xivindzi. Tara said that the boy cub is following Yambilu.

The scene is chaotic because the leopards are running all over the place and there are three vehicles at the sighting all moving all over the place. And to boot the stream is stopping and starting badly :cry1: I was lucky to get this s'cap of Xivindzi.

Karula missed catching the duiker and is now calling her cubbies who are nowhere to be found!

Karula looking for her mapinpans (children in Shangaan). The other guides on the radio said that they are with their father. Yikes!! Now a hyena has moved in!!

Karula has gone up in a tree to avoid the hyena. Still no sign of the cubs.

Oh wait!! There are actually two leopards in the tree. I'm not sure who they are? And now another one has arrived.

Sounds like it's the cubbies and Karula in the tree.

Lots of thunder and lightning moving in to my area so may have to sign off quickly.

The cubbies have both jumped down out of the tree and are playing together on the ground -- awwww!

The boy cubbie at the base of the tree where his Mommy is

Another hyena came in and Xivindzi chased it away -- wow!!

Edited to add:

We're now leaving the sighting to go to where there were lions seen/heard. Oh no! The feed just stopped completely! Guess I'll go and review the archives to see what happened at the beginning of the drive with the leopards.

This is not a very good s'cap but it's Yambilu with one of his kids (don't know which one). It was a brief moment at the beginning of the drive

Then we watched the cubbies jumped around in a tree and on each other. Cute! That's what happened before I signed in tonight :-)

Well--the cam is back but I'm signing off for tonight :hello:
