Thank you for this reminder, the simplest intimacies of the lowveld reside with the bigger communities.

Awesome blog post Werner! I love articles that focus on the prey species that are often ignored. You described their defensive behaviors so nicely! 🙂 Thanks!

Thank you Jacques! All animals are special and I think we, as naturalists, often get caught up in the hype surrounding the “special” species such as Leopard. We should however not depreciate other animals, as they all play such a vitally important role in the environment that we cherish so much!

Thank you Susan! Boyd’s book is absolutely exceptional and full of great stories, in my opinion a must read for every person interested in the natural environment. I really appreciate the feedback and will continue writing blogs about the lesser known and often ignored animals in Bushveld!

This is a really interesting post Werner, I appreciate you giving the spotlight to the underdog. This post reminds me of another animal who demonstrated some fantastic prey avoidance techniques last year. Check out this video of a porcupine defending himself against a pride of 17 lions… http://blog.londolozi.com/2014/10/a-prickly-encounter-lions-vs-porcupine/
