    I wanted to take more pictures of the terrain and the neat things that I saw along the way. This is the second Leopard Tortoise that I came across. He had an interesting, non-typical shell. As I knelt down in front of him (?), I wondered if they are capable of sudden bursts of speed. Fortunately, this guy had no @#%$s to give and didn't bite me.
    While we were chasing the Black Wildebeest bull, we caused an animal to burst from it's den and take off. I didn't get a picture. Initially, I thought it was an Aardwolf, but in retrospect it may have been a Brown Hyena. I also saw a family group of Bat Eared Foxes and an individual who was busy stalking his dinner who either didn't see us (unlikely) or just ignored us (likely). IMG_0881.JPG
