Some South African pictures
10 Attachment(s)
Hey, so I know I've already done a thread like this, but I thought I'd do a new one. I'll post up pictures I've taken of South Africa, from the scenery, to the wildlife etc. It would be really great if you told me what you think of them, and if you asked any questions about S.A :D:D I will be more than willing to answer. And if anyone knows anything about South Africa, or has visited, please feel free to put what you know, and any pictures you may have. Or if you are South African too, then great! :D:lol:

Pictures! (you may recognise some of them from other threads, I'm not sure which ones I've already posted...)

Ya I can tell when the lions are cubs or not. Those guys are probably about 9 to 10mnths old? A couple of animals I don't recognize. Red, white, black stork? And the thick billed bird in the grass.

Is that a burrowing owl? Where are you getting some of these pics Love? I absolutely love those dogs!! We need to get me out there!!!!

You got that right, they were around that age. The stork is a saddle - billed stork, one of the rarest birds in Africa. The other bird is a crested barbet, I love them, they are so punk lol.

The owl is actually a spotted eagle owl, but good guess :) My family and I have taken these pictures when we go on holidays. :)

That's awesome. I have learned a lot of the big cats. I love them and love to watch them on TV. Whenever you have more,, you know where to send them!
