Description

The bontebok is an interesting story. Extinct in the wild, but not endangered.

Hunted almost to extinction, down to about 20 animals in the 1930s, the surviving bontebok were translocated and benignly introduced to parks, reserves, and private farms across the Western Cape and elsewhere in Southern Africa. Like tigers, there are now more bonteboks living outside their native range than inside. The population of >3000 is considered secure and stable.

With calves.

Description

For my money, the most unlikely looking crane. Whenever I see it in a field guide, it reminds me of a child's drawing--the proportions just seem 'off.' But somehow it exists.

Location very approximate. All I remember is that I took a different route than the coastal R27 from Postberg Reserve to Cape Town.
