The Mwanza Flat-Headed Rock Agama, is aptly nicknamed the “Spiderman Lizard” because of its vivid red and blue colouring. This stunning color combo however, is only donned by a lounge’s dominant male. And much like its superhero counterpart, it also has a sensitive “spidey sense” that spurs it to change its color to a more unobtrusive dull brown when it feels threatened.
Cape Buffaloes are often led to and from their grazing areas and water sources by the herd’s most dominant bulls and cows. Unlike the lower-ranking members of a herd, these high ranking buffaloes are free to travel in front and graze at the center of the troop, which gives them the best choice of grass and additional protection from predators.
While the male Kori Bustard adopts a love ‘em and leave ‘em attitude when it comes to mating and nesting, its female counterpart behaves quite differently. A Kori Bustard mama is so attentive to its nesting duties, that it stays in the nest almost the entire incubation period rarely drinking and eating.

The legs of the Black-Winged Stilt make up for more than half of its height, which is quite useful as it prefers wading in shallow waters searching for food like insects, worms and even small molluscs and crustaceans. During game drives, guests can often spot this elegant-looking bird in or around watering holes, marshes, lakes or ponds.

And though it may look quite gentle, this highly opportunistic predator is known for its uncanny ability to peel off the entire spiny pelt of a hedgehog before feeding on it.
Being cute is not enough to survive when you are born to be wild.... Lion cubs are born blind and are totally helpless when they are born. This is one of the reasons why their mothers leave the pride and stay in isolation with their offsprings for four to eight weeks after giving birth. And up until they are at least two years old, these cute cubs remain vulnerable to threats like starvation, predators and even from other male lions taking over a pride.
