Sable herd

A great surpise today was a herd of 16 rare Sable Antelope that came to drink at Bandama Pan.

 

These are such great looking animals and the dominant bull is a truly handsome dude. With those long curved horns I’ve seen a bull keep 2 lions at bay as he went down on his knees and swept his horns at the lions each time they tried to approach. The stalemate ended with the bull saving his own life as the lions moved off. More at www.wildcast.net
