Thanks for posting this Nan. \O Great behaviour that's not been captured that often. They carry young cubs in the water and over the ice to stop them getting chilled when they are this young. \O

Gert Erasmus suggests this is a nyala, arks! ..0..

Working on the grey part! \O


Dr De Vos was on holiday! He thinks it is mange (Sarcoptes). It is difficult to make out from the pic, he says, but it looks like some patches of skin have been affected. They refer to the condition as "having been strewn with ash". \O

:-? Looks like some type of mud dauber wasp home. The holes can be made by the adult as it emerges, or by parasitic wasps that steal the food (spiders, insects) that are in the cells by boring into them.

It almost looks like a mud dauber home (large base) with subsequent potter wasp homes being attached, but I can't tell from the pic.

Cool, whatever it turns out to be! Thanks. \O
