Hey Tabs! When I first started viewing the cam last fall I use to see deerlike critters at night. Never knew what they were unless the cam op was still up and would zoom. Some I think were identified as reedbucks, then their were small ones that were way smaller than impalas. Once I think the cam op even zoomed on one that seemed to be a waterbuck atleast going by it's horns. Most of the time they were either solitary or in doubles. Never did actually see an impala that was identified as such.

I have seen the impalas moving around at night or hanging out in the right field a few times this year but don't recall any being solitary.

Thought I just heard the leopard sawing again. Anyone else?

I really don't think we would see a jackal at that distance. Can't even see them back there in daylight unless cam op finds them and zooms. But do I know what it was?.... NO LOL

Well.........I don't have any idea....so I posted it as "unknown" in the streaming pics thread. If someone identifies it....they can edit me. :lol:

I'll upload the second critter.... the clarity on it is even worse. :(
I'd say Impala. If you look at the reflection about 55 seconds in, you can almost see antlers. Young male?

It moved from there to the left side of the hole...where it sorta got lost in the light-blast. I think it might have been a jackel?
