Wherever you walk in the bush, you see these huge holes dug into old termite mounds. They are excavated by warthogs who use them as burrows to sleep in at night and to raise their young. For something which looks like a domestic pig (only uglier LOL!!) they are very adapt at digging and use their snouts. This is also used to dig up tubers in winter when other food is scarce.
The dead carcass of a millipede which has gone white with age. I pause to wonder what it was trying to do in the crevasse I found him in? Trying to get away from predators? Looking for a place to lay its eggs? Who can tell, certainly not me.
A huge shell of a snail, it must be at least 5 inches from tip to tip. When it rains, the roads will be covered in them but as the clouds have not yet started to build up, I think it is still a couple of weeks away.
In all my wanderings, the flowers on the Impala Lily adds a wonderful splash of color every now and then. As soon as spring is in the air, these are one of the first plants to bloom. What a pretty sight they make.
I found a tiny Flap-necked Chameleon who looked very thin as there are not many bugs around and took him home and put him in a tree next to a bush with flowers on which would attract insects.
Here he is pretending to be a twig and leaf. I wonder if his disguise fools the butterflies and other insects? :) He looks kind of grouchy today doesn’t he?
