Lai this is the end of the Wild Dogs vs Hyena confrontation, they are seen nearly every day on the drives at the moment, along with Kurula, and other Leopards plus a very dynamic Lion situation with small groups all over the place, and a new force of 5 males approaching their prime called the Birmingham  Boys.It's really worth you watching this 12 1/2 min video of the adults, and pups you'll really enjoy it if you have time

You the man WS and Thanks for sharing that clip. It was so worth watching. I think Wild dogs/painted wolves have to be one of the things I would like to see most, having only seen them briefly twice at Sarara. They are so interesting with their habits and their hierarchy and they have such beautiful markings. I loved the dog trying to get passed the ele Very Happy

A wonderful clip WS.

Your welcome Lai, there have been some wonderful sightings of the wild dogs almost on a daily basis. As the pups are noe nearly fully grown, I guess it wont be long before the pack move on to new territory, as that is wild dog behaviour. If we get anymore views that are interesting I will pass them on here. BTW the afternoon drives are now on daily from 3-00pm to 6-00pm, just in case you ever get time to watch.

Glad you enjoyed it

What a great clip WS.  Definitely a case of 'keep your friends close and your enemies closer'.  That large pack of wild dogs is magnificent and it was interesting to see first the zebra and then the wildies seeing them off.  I have not seen that before but then I have never seen a large pack of wild dog.

Djuma is certainly lucky to have them around at the moment.

Thanks for sharing.

Can any of you tell if this is a Black Backed Jackal, or Side Stripped Jackal at Petes Pond

Well he has a stripe on his side so I guess a side striped jackal......but i'm no expert by any means either....I see there is some controversy as to whether its a side striped or a black back due to the different ranges but for a non expert i'm going with a side striped Very Happy

There is a lot of confusion, and debate about this. Some think Side stripped, the problem is they have never been resorded as being at PP, only Black Backed. To further complicate it this is the visitor last night who appeared at the same time in the same place

Which I'm certain is a Black Backed young Jackal, the only other answer is we have two species visiting at more or less the same time.
Which ever it is, it needs to be very careful we now have a resident Croc which we think came from the Limpopo Rive a couple of miloes away it's feeding up on the big cat fish, and in the last 10 days or so has grabbed a small Antelope, and a Wildebeest Calf, its really grown since it got here.

Well as far as i'm concerned WS that Croc can stop growing up....poor Antelope and little Wildie calf Sad he can go back to the Limpopo River and stay there Razz

This young Jackal, which ever one it is, needs to take care, being young he may not be so alert and could be right in danger before he knows it affraid

I saw there was a debate about the territory etc but which ever species it is, it surely is a beautiful one and great to see it......just please keep out of danger and yes please WS....keep us updated.

Its getting even more confusing one of the Jackals we thought was a young one turned up with a very small Pup a couple of nights ago scratch scratch
Aquick Video of our resident Croc been at PP since 10th Dec, and boy has it grown

http://viewpure.com/tOD8zwUe1MI?start=0&end=0

We have two new HD cams at PP and Djuma the shots and zoom capability are amazing

Post  littlewid on Sat Jan 16, 2016 10:36 pm

So it's either not such a young one WS or its a young one with a younger sibling or younger pack member....all a mystery but it would be great to find out if its siblings of different ages or pack relations.

That new cam is amazing isn't it....its so clear......you could count his teeth affraid it must be so exciting to have the new cams, it makes for much clearer watching doesnt it and although it was great to see him, he can still swim off back to the Limpopo River and leave PP's wildlife and those Jackals alone Mad

The two birds you can are a Grey Heron, and a Yellow Bill Stork. They are residents of the pond, and the croc doesn't both with them, just swims round them. Probably looks at those thighs and thinks there's not much meat there not worth borhering with .
I just put them here as a trial, not sure what to do with them, but thought they may be useful for something if we have a revamp.

Ah well I was kind of right with Stork them WS Very Happy i'm glad the resident croc leaves them alone and your right, there isn't much meat on those legs Laughing

I'm glad you posted the cams up WS as your right if we do a revamp we can sort them out properly as it's good to have them here. I was hoping to have a bit more time to look at them this weekend but Tiga has been keeping me busy......he's getting much better but needs my beady eyes on him still Shocked
