Did you know : Giraffes chew bones? They’re herbivores, are they not?

Why chew on bones?

Leopards and cheetahs both have spots. Do they? One has ‘tear’ marks. One is not shy.

Which is which?

Rhinos are known to build dung heaps. But why do they scatter their dung?

RePosted • @_mehrin.s_ Here are glimpses of another day spent with @dolphintoursandsafaris and where we had the best sleep ever thanks to @themeliacollection ‘s hotel, at the edge of the ngorongoro crater. The air was perfect the weather was perfect and the views, oh the views were perfect.
Also we spotted the rarest, extinct species on earth, the Rhinoceros, it was so far we could only see it through the binoculars but it was amazing.

- thank you so much for your review! It was a pleasure indeed. 🌱

Inspiration Tours & Safaris

Let us advise, plan and deliver a sensory journey for you.

See and feel the drama of nature, the hunted, the predators. The cry of a fish eagle or grunting of hippos. The speed of the cheetah, the stealth of the elusive leopard. The herds of the great migration and the circle of life. The magic of African sunsets, the campfire scent, the nocturnal sounds, the shooting stars, eyes in the night, the morning dew and sunrise. The silence, and being in the moment.

It's feeling the Swahili and Maasai cultures. The islands of the east African coast, of sun, beaches, corals and swimming with majestic giants, the whale sharks.

Great Migration Safari

Be up close and witness one of the most spectacular migrations on earth. Up to 2 million animals, led by the wildebeest and antelope, followed closely by the predators on their annual migration following the rains and food. A real bucket list adventure.

Hike Kilimanjaro

Hike, not climb up the world's highest free-standing mountain. Guided hikes, to stand on the top of Africa, Mt Kilimanjaro is Africa's highest mountain. A bucket list challenge, do-able by those with moderate fitness and the right attitude.

Swim with Whale Sharks

A surreal experience in one of the few destinations in the world where these massive, gentle giants gather, Mafia Island. This is never forgotten by those who are touched by their proximity.

Giraffes are known to chew bones to supplement their calcium intake.

Leopards do not have spots, they have a rosette type pattern. Cheetahs have spots. In the image the 1st and 3rd are leopards

This behaviour of the rhino is about marking their territory
