I really like the Leopard Cam Dave, we can see lots of interesting things.

Look at this link about the Gemsbok http://www.sa-venues.com/wildlife/wildlife_gemsbok.htm - we won't see him at our waterhole.

They are interesting. They have special blood vessels in the nose to help cool down the blood travelling to their brains - SOURCE

Very cool site lots of info on things, thanks Laughing out loud

Regarding donkeys, cows and humans!

There are several camera traps in the Cederbergs, from which the images shown on the cam are taken.

Some of these camera traps are way up in the mountains, in areas where only animals, serious hikers and researchers venture, and from these you will see rare and/or endangered animals such as the African Wild Cat plus other animals like the Gemsbok which live in true wildlife areas where only the occasional hikers, and the researchers, go.

Other cameras are located lower down in the valleys where sheep, goat and cattle farmers live.
Leopards, Caracals, Genets and other small predators will be seen through these cams as well as a few antelope species and some other small mammals such as porcupines.
However, because these cameras are located on or near stock farms, you will also see cattle and donkeys!

Most of the 'human' images seen are of the Cape Leopard researchers and volunteers - the pictures being taken when they go out to maintain the cameras or to set traps for the leopards in order that they can put radio collars on them to track their movements.

The Cape Leopard Trust is doing vital research into the leopards in the region as there are very few leopards left in the Cape region and they are in need of urgent conservation measures if they are to survive.

Easiest to quote Tabs, she has been there several times and that dog in her avatar is a sheep dog she's sponsering
