I made a video of this. :D (I'm probably easily amused, but I thought it was funny. ;D)

Wiggle wiggle :D

We are all now experts on animal rear ends - Grant's gazelle  ::)

Tell me about it ::)

I have no idea what this is! A peacock crossed with a cheetah perhaps . . . ?

Ah, I got that one. I think it's a Kori Bustard's neck.

Look! Something in the usually deserted spot! Now I just need to work out what it is  ::) Looks like a breathing boulder  :D



Do you think it could be a rhino? Why do they always stand with their bums towards the camera  ::)

Oh, reedbuck are so adorable! :-*

I think quite a few critters know to stand with their rear ends or nether regions pointed at the camera! ::)

Is anyone else getting almost all wildebeest, Thomson's gazelles and zebra?

Yes, it's easy to see which species are most common! And do you notice that when a group of wildebeest are resting a few individuals always stay standing on predator watch.

That is true, Tsering! They do seem to be very cooperative - I have put "interacting" a few times even when there's no motion, they just look as if they're talking to each other.

I have no idea who this is!

I think it's probably a buffalo? It looks so pale in the camera flash though  :-\
