The Capybara of Timbavati Wildlife Park

The Capybara of Timbavati Wildlife Park

Posted August 29, 2016 in Uncategorized

Greetings and Salutations dear friends! This week at Timbavati Wildlife Park we enter the world of the world’s largest rodent, the Capybara. This herbivore is a native of South America and is as comfortable in water as it is on land. First, let’s consider its size. A male adult can weigh anywhere from 75 to 150 pounds and stand almost 2 feet tall on all fours. Se we’re dealing with a rodent the size of a large domestic dog.

Greetings and salutations dear friends. This week we are taking a trip to South America to take an in depth look at the Greater Rhea of Timbavati Wildlife Park! It is the largest bird in South America and the 3rd largest bird in the world. Its relatives the ostrich and emu are the only ones that are larger. My personal experiences with the Rhea also place them as less aggressive than the other two larger birds as well. If you remember the White Emu were very unhappy with our presence in their enclosure as you can see by this video…

The Bobcats of Timbavati Wildlife Park

The Bobcats of Timbavati Wildlife Park

Posted August 1, 2016 in Uncategorized

One denizen of Timbavati Wildlife Park is the Bobcat which is an exclusive native of North America. I like to refer to bobcats as kind of a mid-sized cat. Your typical house cat will weigh 4-8 pounds (depending on species and diet sometimes more, sometimes less). A large cat like a lion or tiger will easily be in excess of 300 pounds and top out around 500 pounds. Bobcats will weigh between 15 and 30 pounds with the males being larger than the females. You will know if you’re looking at a bobcat by the tufts of fur on the…
