What happens now CC? You feel like a very proud http://i77.servimg.c !

I know that you would much rather be known as a leopard in Tree , but rabbit is simply the term that we use around here for talking a lot.

Like this dude http://i77.servimg.c

Or this guy with the big mouth http://i77.servimg.c

Sometimes http://i77.servimg.c s like Lai and I need something to stop us from chatting, like maybe a milkshake http://i77.servimg.c Or something stronger like http://www.picgifs.c

But overall, 'rabbit' is most definitely a term of endearment on the WAA. It's a Thanks for your posts and interactions. So cheers http://www.picgifs.c

By the way, that 15,000 number is crazy affraid In fact I'm calling it a total croc Laughing

Tiny is estimated to be about 2ft long. Yes 15,000 is a lot of baby Crocs, and most of them will not have survived. I can think of only one reason why there's a Crocodile farm, because as far as I know they are not endangered in South Africa. I think it's better they had their brief spell of freedom rather than end up on somebodys feet or slung over some ladies arm What a Face

I Agree WS, I may not be keen on crocs but I for sure do not want them to be made into handbags No

GR, thank you for explaining the albino thing to me!

I think I am more leopard in Tree ish than http://i77.servimg.c ish; I know that I would talk much more if English was my native language. But I do my best! Razz

Thank you Lai and WS, you are so kind!

WS, I found PP almost two years ago. It all started when my daughter sent me a link to Tallinn Zoo webcam when Baruto was born. I was addicted immediately! Shocked Then I thought that there must be some other webcams in the world... and there were: PP was one of the first I found, and Djuma (and the safari drives), Africam... and many more.

My life has changed a lot ever since, in a positive way. Very Happy

The Safari Drives were really good CC. It's a shame they stopped we used to really used to love them on here, and we also have a section where we used to post photo of the animals seen on the drive. Do you remember Kurula she was a star, and we still get news of her now.

Tiny was at the Pond this morning warming up on his favourite log. Apparently another has been spotted this ones only about a foot long so I think it will have to be called Teeny Very Happy

Cremecat that was a brilliant shot of the Tiny Croc cheers it was so clear as well. 15.000 escping from the farm, I too am glad they escaped rather than ending up a a handbag or pair of shoes Mad a short happy life is better than being farmed to be killed.

Well Done on your 100th post and joining the albino club and I agree you do so well as English is not your first language Like a Star @ heaven

Oh the old game drives in the morning, they were fantastic and WS is right, a lot of us were glued to them.

Thanks for the pic also of Tiny WS and the info. I don't have much time to keep up with PP which is a shame really.

pale What a Face Ouch, that's sad and I'm quite surprised a Heron would eat a croc even if it was a small one.

Thanks for letting us know WS.

Finally cought up with PP, it's had really bad connection, and breakdown problems over the last few months, so I gave up looking, but I checked last night, and there's some really good news. Bonny & Clyde had 12 little mobsters yesterday morning http://i73.servimg.c  I will try to get a  pic or video as soon as I can, but at the moment they are cuddled up under either Mum or Dad all the time

Sorry forgot to say the video of B&C's mobsters is 48 secs
This is the Gent Vid is 58 secs long  The Genet was on patrol all night, sneaking among the rocks, or in the bushes watching the pond. B&C were on and off the pond all night as different predators came in, and out

http://i73.servimg.c  WS and thanks for posting those 3 clips, I've caught up with them now and fantastic to see B & C with their 12. What a great number and let's hope they all survive, although I know that is highly unlikely. It will be lovely to watch them grow. The genet clip was great WS, such a beautiful cat and so elusive normally.

A taste of Africa - well that did it for me. What a great clip to start the day, the wildie boys, zebra and lots of guinea fowl - Pete's pond never disappoints.

Thanks WS - you're a Like a Star @ heaven  for keeping up with the cams.

Interesting night at the Pond last night, the Guck alarm went off. An explanation of the term Guck, the Guys on Petes Pond chat call B&C Gucks the reason being that although they look like a Duck, they are actualy a Goose, hence the name Guck, and they call the little ones Guckletts Very Happy . Anyway Clyde was on beach patrol when he sounded the intruder alarm. A Hyena came onto the beach area, and as soon as he sounded the alarm the little ones were ushered into the water for safety
1min 19 secs

They were all safe, and well, and there was still 12 of them this morning when I had a quick look in

If you though the Genet was elusive Lai here's another that many people who visit Africa never see, we were lucky to see it last night. It's not my video as my screen froze at the crucial time, but fortunatley one of the Guys caught it

The Aardvark
1min 49 secs

Gucks and Guck alarm and Guckletts, I love it. What a great name for them, and for sure Geese make good guard dogs so they are very useful to have around Pete's pond. Great to know all 12 are still alive and well.

The Aardvark clip is amazing, they really are such curious looking creatures with those ears. I've been lucky enough to see one only once and briefly on a night game drive, so this was lovely to watch.

Thanks for sharing WS.

Oh great clips WS, loved seeing the Genet, that was a really nice clip and the Africa clip was brillaint and so clear as well, it was just brilliant to watch and loving clyde and his warning calls, what a great dad and also what a great name Gucks and Guckletts, that really made me smile and good to know all the little Guckletts were there this morning. Isnt the Aardvark such a sweet looking animal, I think thats the first we have of one on cam here isnt it.
Thanks so much for checking the cams WS, you are a true Like a Star @ heaven
