Hi Everyone! Need some help here. Today at a little after noon water hole time I captured a chase of some sorts. Trying to figure out who is chasing who. LOL The second one running looks to be an impala but the first is the mystery. Also, before the chase an animal seems to rise up out of the grass in the right field and walk off screen. Not sure if it was a resting impala or what. I hate mysteries..

Before the chase, there were grunts and bird warnings.

Hi Aquila, thanks for posting this. I did not see it live, but my take on this is a territorial impala ram chasing a younger ram that may have been infringing upon his female herd. (or just felt threatened by the presence of the younger ram)

I don't have a strong opinion on this one, but think the two critters were running in the same way (gait, speed), so this makes sense to me.. i think jackals run differently than impala.. on the other hand, I have seen jackals chased and be chased by everything lately, so nothing would surprise me..

Also, this critter went by the back of the point earlier. Looks a little bigger than the average mongoose.

I won't even hazard a blobguess for this one, except to agree that it looks a little bigger than a mongoose, and doesn't move like one either.. I wish these animals would come down to the WH and pose for us Smiling

I agree, it did look bigger. There is one SSJackal I've seen that is bigger, quite long of leg. Have no idea if it was him or not. I just wanted to mention that an impala has chased a jackal before, several of us saw it yeaterday. No filmers tho.

I didn't see the one yesterday, but the day before I recorded an impala chasing a jackal. It was right after the ground hornbills ran him off. LOL Yesterday, the jackal harrassed the ground hornbills again but I must have missed the impala chase. Smiling

looked like im;ala to me too both of them.

Thanks, the coloring looked different to me and the profile. Could have been an older one chasing off a young one. At first I thought maybe the first one was a young wildebeest.
