The Horaltic Pose


Turkey Vultures are often seen standing in a spread-winged stance. This is called the "horaltic pose."
The stance may serve multiple functions, including warming the body and drying the wings.
Research on this pose suggests that turkey vultures spread their wings in the mornings,
once the sun's intensity reaches a certain level, to raise their body temperature (which they lower at night by a few degrees as an energy saving mechanism).
Many birds dry their wings using this horaltic pose

Yesterday morning our conservation volunteers in Tembe Elephant Park (Paule Garnero, Pam Morris, Robert Shore and Brian Gunn), witnessed a remarkable discovery....!


Conservation volunteer Robert Shore snapped this pic as proof that Spotted Hyaenas still roam Tembe Elephant Park!

The last official sighting was in 2002 by field rangers, and we came across 2 in fading light in February 2012 – but without any photographic proof.


Ecologists in Tembe are abuzz with excitement, as we can now confirm they are still here – and leads to the probability that the Brown Hyaenas could also still be roaming Tembe in silence and unseen….. 10 years is a long wait!
