"Master list" of species?

I was just wondering if there's a list anywhere of all the different species which have shown up at the watering hole, and been identified for sure. Is there such a thing?

If not, could the moderators start a "Sticky" thread for that? It would be handy to know what other kinds of animals we should keep an eye out for, that we haven't personally seen yet.

But if an animal can be found near both cams, how do we know that? The database usually only shows one picture per animal. Does that mean that the animal is seen only in the place where the picture was taken? I hope not ... else, the Leopard Cam won't ever get to detect any leopards, as the leopard pic is from the waterhole! :shock:

It'd be helpful if the database-entry for each animal listed all of the cams at which it has been seen, that's all. (Sorry if I'm being a nag about it. :oops: )

Hi Wolfwing, Under each picture in the database you can see on wich cam the pic was taken.

As far as today, all mammals that were seen and identified on the Nkroho cam are mentionned in the database.

As soon as new mammals appear on the Nkorho streaming cam or any other cams, we will be adding them to the database.

That's what I was hoping for, too: a list specifically for the live cam.

Oh I know...I'm just wondering if there is a list of animals that have been spoted from the Nkhoro cam. So I know what animals can be expected and what animals most likly can't be.

The list shows any animals which have been seen on any of the South Africa-based cams..... and there is a notation below each picture of which cam the pic was taken from

All of the pics have been taken (lifted) from the Africam Cams but not all of the animals featured on the list can be seen on all of the cams as they are located in different parts of South Africa - each of which has some species of animals that cannot easily be seen elsewhere in South Africa.

Leopard cam, for example, is based in the far south-west mountains of SA, whereas Nkorho cam is based in the far North-east 'bushveldt' of the country - and the distance between tham is such that they have very different eco-systems, weather, climate and animal/bird-life.

Hi Rotipher,

I put up a web page that is a photo album of what I've seen. It's not a "master list", but it's a list of what I have personally seen so far. It's only a month old, but it's growing fast Laughing out loud
