Robyn, We love the way you helped explain a complicated subject and made it understandable. The “circular process” and they way all the different species interact is really interesting!

Thanks, Robyn for this great article on these exceptional engineers.
I always find it amazing how the different animals ‘engineer’ landscapes and kind of work together so that nature can function so perfectly. Everything is of such importance, and that’s why conservation is so important. The people at Londolozi contribute to this in amazing ways and the guests as well, though in a more passive way, just by visiting and making all these efforts possible.

This is great information Robyn about how rhinos play such an important role in the eco system. I knew about the ticks that inhabit their bodies, but had never heard of the bot fly. These blogs provide not only beautiful images daily, but amazing facts as well.

Great blog, Darwin was a deep observer, immersed in nature. I love the picture of the hippo showing his teeth to rhinos they don’t care at all.
