Some news from Easter and Rooibos

Hello guys,

I have some good news for you. Recently, I have been in touch with the rangers at Buhmans Kloof, and Regardt, the head ranger, sent me some cool pictures of Easter and Rooibos on a springbok kill. Apparently, Easter killed the antilope on May, 26th. The rangers found the kill and put a remote camera close to it. The caracals came back at night on the 27th and 28th. They both seem to be in good health.

I let you discover the pictures, enjoy!

Rooibos, with a full belly, is resting close to the carcass his mother killed two days ago

Easter with her GPS radio collar. We can see a small wound on her left leg, probably due to the springbok when she killed it (springboks are three times heavier than caracals!)

On June 26th, 27th and 28th, Anita from the Boland Project and myself will be talking about leopards and tracking caracals at Bushmans Kloof Wilderness Reserve and Wellness Retreat. To read more about the previous experience and to book the next exciting trip, click here.

  1. Little Rooibos, with his tail draped over mum, looks so affectionate!

    Hi Marine, great caracal pictures, I love these cats! To those who find capturing them for research is cruel: how much nicer to see a live Easter with her radio collar than a dead caracal or leopard in a gin trap or with a bullet hole. Keep up your good work. Jurg.
