    New Bushnell Trail Cam from yesterday evening on Mbizi. A decent Lion Male, but the rainy conditions make the photo a bit blurry.

    Thi9elsp, I would swear that Croc is 14 foot, can even be 15, but the last tip of the tail is missing so I will say 14 foot.

    Hi Eric, with out make any advertisement for Luangwa Valley in Zambia... I will only say that I'm very pleased to see cats climb the bait during daytime in full daylight. It's a indication of confidence special with Leopards, and it's a result that no cat hunting have been done here for years.

    Based on looks alone, that croc makes most lions look like house cats!

    Yes Brickburn that's a nice one for sure, the photos was on 250 meter but with out a tripod so the result was not very sharp.... I got within 120 meter today from him and then the battery in the camera was dead...:cry: I can not say for sure the size but we have Klipspringers that was taken on Mbizi that measure 6,5" and was the number one in Zambia for some time...

    Anyhow, what I like with the Luangwa Klipspringer is the fantastic silver/gray colour on the back part.

    Still with battery in the camera on the way out this nice Kudu bull was down on a dry riven bed.

    Best regards from Luangwa,
    Michael
