That's what we think. They were alone, without a pride, so we guessed they were brother's. My brother guessed they were about 1 and a half, so yes, your right :)

Hey, that's awesome . I love your diversity.

How do you manage to take that close & clear animal pictures? Do you have these animals also around your home (you said these are vacation pics)?

Lol, RedTree that would be awesome! My brother did some volunteer work there, I'm not sure if it's the same place though, but still

Carleen, you should then! Lol just tell a family member "it's be my Christmas AND birthday present till I'm 70!"

TaMMa, we have a vacation house in a small game park called Marloth, which is just outside the Kruger National Park. Some of the pics, like the sunsets, and the clips in the video, like the snake on the wall, the warthogs, and the birds were taken from the veranda and balcony of that house (the snake was actually trying to get in!), but most of the pics and clips were taken at the Kruger, from the car, with a REALLY good lens ans zoom that belongs to my brother. Most of the picd are his, I prefer to take scenery shots

More!! :) These one of reptiles and similar things, I'll also say what they are, and where we took the picture

A terapin, taken at the Kruger

Ok, this little guy is actually "mine". He is of course wild, and I am not able to touch him and stuff. He is a boomslang, and I rescued him from a trap about 3 years ago, and since then he has lived in the tatched roof of our Marloth house. He stays away from people, he is wild and is scared of humans, so none of the guests even know he's there, so shhhhhh. Lol. He's pretty isnt he? I've named him Lijan

And this is a baby water monitor that we found trying to climb up or drain pipe at Marloth Poor thing was really lost, so my brother managed to somehow get him back down to the river

More in about 10 minutes!!

Ok lol, it's been a bit longer than 10 minutes, but I found the pics I wanted to share!

My brother took these. They are the best he's ever taken, and they have been framed and put up in our Marloth house

Wow I love all the pictures they are beautiful. I have a friend from south africa (i think I have already said that before) and she went back for a visit just a few months ago. She was just showing me some pictures today actually of her visit.
