Hi Mads, what an amazing sighting, great footage. :thumbs_up:

An other magic moment was in the Kgalagadi. We saw two Jackals with a prey [Bad eared Fox] After some time there was a Caracal and a fight between the Caracal and Jackals began. The Caracal came to take his prey back that was stolen by the Jackals. Have a look. :shock:

Off the top of my head I can think of SusieB's hyenas, Sharifa and Duke's lion roar :big_eyes: , Caracal's... anything really, Nico's wonderful compilations of animal and music, Toko's compilation of all of the Parks... and.. and.. and. I remember Katy's cobra's and someone who posted the most incredible footage of a cobra eating a puffadder on Table mountain.


Here it is, MM :D

Hi ossendryver, we saw Duke several times on the S28 some years ago.

Mating Leopards in Krugerpark is one of the most amazing moments that we had in the African Bush :wink:

An absolut highlight or magic moment is when you see Black Rhino in KrugerPark. We saw three Black Rhino near Croc Bridge, a magic moment. :wink:

[quote="ossendryver"]Hi there all to all film photographers.
this was filmed in kruger when a croc was attacked by about 20 terrapins. all on the road. then the croc attacked back!

Hi ossendryver, if i am correct, this was close to Olifants? We saw them in May 2010. It looked like they were friends. The Croc stayed in the water and his mates came to the car, maybe because people were feeding them.

Lovely film :clap: :dance:
