Snapshot Serengeti Talk

I have an animal that is too close to the camera. I can only see its flank/leg/nose. What do I do?

    We would like you to try your best to identify the animal. While we realize that it won’t be possible in every case to make a 100% confident determination, you can usually narrow down difficult images to some reasonable options. For example, if you can only see part of the flank, you still have an idea of what color it is and how short or long the fur is. Make your best guess. Your answer will be combined with answers of other volunteers, so don’t worry about getting it wrong.
