The Kudu of Timbavati Wildlife Park

The Kudu of Timbavati Wildlife Park

Posted January 31, 2017 in Uncategorized

Greetings Friends, this week we’re talking about the Kudu! This animal is a type of antelope from the more arid parts of Africa. A Greater Kudu stands 4 to 5 feet in height and males can weigh anywhere from 500 to 700 pounds. Female Kudu weigh anywhere from 400 to 500 pounds. In contrast a lesser Kudu stands 3 to 4 feet in height and the males will weigh 130-to 200 pounds. These antelope have really long spiraled horns like a few of the antelope species in Africa do. The best way I can identify one is by the marking…

The Attraction To Flight – A Parakeet Encounter

The Attraction To Flight – A Parakeet Encounter

Posted January 25, 2017 in Uncategorized

Welcome this week we are taking a look at our Parakeet Encounter at Timbavati Wildlilfe Park! There is just something about flight; from the Greek story of “The Boy That Flew Too High” to the tales in Egyptian hieroglyphics about the son of Ra, Horus the Falcon. As humans we have been enamored with flight. We are land dwellers who on occasion and sometimes with great adaptability swim. However, we cannot jump off of the ground and take flight. I think it is this limitation that conjures up so much interest in flight. Be it the Wright Brothers at Kitty…

Happy Squirrel Appreciation Day

Happy Squirrel Appreciation Day

Posted January 21, 2017 in Uncategorized

Happy Squirrel Appreciation Day! That’s right, most of you are probably unaware but January 21st is Squirrel Appreciation Day. Our fuzzy little friends can be found over all of these great United States and keep in mind that for a lot of kids in metropolitan areas, a squirrel is largely the only wild animal that some kids have the opportunity to see on a regular basis. Squirrels plant seeds and nuts to help the cycle of flora perpetuate and they are also much smarter that most people give them credit for! We think squirrels are cool, and enjoy watching these…

The Addax of Timbavati Wildlife Park

The Addax of Timbavati Wildlife Park

Posted January 18, 2017 in Uncategorized

Greetings once again friends of Timbavati Wildlife Park and welcome back to this week’s topic, the Addax. This native of the Sahara Desert has adapted to a climate that bests many other animals. Like the camel, its hooves are adapted to the desert sand. Think of a snow shoe which permits us to walk appoint drifts or how we have to work twice as hard to walk on the beach. These adapted feet permit the addax to be sure footed in the desert. Addax Features The addax has a highly concentrated urine. This feature allows it to live on the…

Albino Animals at Timbavati Wildlife Park

Albino Animals at Timbavati Wildlife Park

Posted January 10, 2017 in Uncategorized

Greetings Timbavati Friends and Family members! This week I wanted to take a look into albino animals. Something that isn’t commonly discussed but all too often recognized in the animal kingdom; “albinism.” At first glance an albino animal is typically discussed interchangeably with a white animal. A white tiger is white not an albino, same goes for a white emu which was introduced to Timbavati Wildlife Park in 2016. These animals become exclusively bred with other white animals for purpose of creating that perfectly white animal. I hear there’s talk of a mostly white tiger cub that was born recently…

Posted January 3, 2017 in Uncategorized

Greetings friends of Timbavati Wildlife Park and Happy New Year to you all! This week we are talking about the Pygmy Goat which is a native of West Africa. It was developed from the West African Dwarf Goat which is mostly found in the Cameroon Valley. They were taken to Europe during the Colonial Era and brought over to the United States in the 1950’s.
