Such a cute little baby zebra!
I was surprised to see so many baby animals in Pilanesberg last week, since winter is coming soon. But I guess that for now there is enough food to be had from the long grass.
An adorable baby rhino resting in the shade. Rhinos spend their days and nights grazing, only resting during the hottest hours of the day. After birth, a baby rhino can walk within an hour. A rhino is born without a horn, but the front horn becomes visible within one or two months. The back horn starts growing when the calf is about a year old. The calf will stay with its mother for about three years before setting off on its own.
This cute couple is Mr. and Mrs. Klipspringer. Klipspringers – literally it means ‘rock jumper’ – are small antilopes, reaching a maximum shoulder height of 60cm. They enjoy acrobatic jumps on rocky outcrops. Because their habitat is often inaccessible and commercially not interesting, klipspringers are doing relatively well in large parts of Africa.
