Snapshot Serengeti Talk
A beautiful #aardwolf, love these animals!
My first #civet!
Looks like a wildebeest 😃
Vervet Monkeys! I'm so excited to see these three!
Thanks! I couldn't quite tell if they were black-backed or side-striped 😄
Awesome! Thanks so much, the little ungulates are often confusing!
#Jackal. I think it is a Golden Jackal, not positive however. It could be a shaggy Black-backed Jackal
#Jackal pair, I think they are black-backed jackals but the lighting makes it difficult to tell.
How can you be sure its a dik-dik? I looks more like a reedbuck to me. Are there more photos of this individual?
#wildebeest, #zebras and #otherbird, which I think is a Fischer's Sparrow-Lark.
Several zebras and a dik-dik
I’m guessing bushbuck, outside black ear mark. Note lack of black ear tips, a characteristic of impalas. Do you guys agree with me?
Unknown bird. Reminds me of a corvid, any ideas helpful moderators?
My first waterbuck photo! I'm super excited!
Zebras at dik-dik corner
Dust devil on the horizon!
Impala female and baby!
it looks like two zebras to me.
Probably a bat, or large insect, my guess is a bat though.
Thanks, the spiral horned antelope group has some of the most beautiful species in Africa, the bushbuck is definitely one of them.
Bohor reedbuck! love these little antelope!
I agree that's its a buffalos, unlike wildebeest, they don't have tails with very long hair.
This looks like a white-bellied bustard! Great find!
#giraffes, thanks moderators for reminding me to look for cryptic individuals in the background, especially when it comes to giraffes.
Pair of #crowned-plovers
I think they are very interesting mammals, it was awesome to get a photo of one.
#Black-Backed-Jackal and a Thomson's Gazelle.
I adore this curious impala.
Lovely female #impala
Older bull buffalo often get wrinkly with old age. Google has some good photos of them.
#Thomson's-Gazelle in rut plus a francolin or spurfowl in foreground
#wildebeest herd with babies
Surprising for such large animals, it would be interesting to run into them while a foot in the field.
No problem, and now that I'm looking at aardwolf photos, I think it's probably an aardwolf and not a jackal.
Oh sorry I'll remove the hashtag
Falcon like bird. Short tail, pointed wings, and eye mask reminds me of a Lanner falcon.
One of the three jackal species?
It's definitely interesting, I don't know anything about their social systems, but I have only seen solitary individuals until now.
White-tailed mongoose mating pair?
Lovely female #bushbuck
Several #butterflies #insects
Possibly my favorite #zebra photo set. Beautiful against the green grass. Why are zebras so photogenic?
#kori-bustard #selfie love these massive birds.
Two #zebras, five #wildebeest, and one wattled starling, #otherbird
Helmeted guinea fowl rushing about!
#zebra with, what I think are, two wattled starlings on it's back.
In frame two there is a bird... wing and tail bands look like a plover species, maybe a crowned, or black winged.
Not quite sure what this is. My top three guesses are 1: hartebeest 2: eland 3: impala, tho I think it looks too large for an impala.
I think it is one of th smaller streaked cisticola species that occur in grasslands maybe Zitting cisticola. Frame 1 & 2 shows a thin bill.
I love this set!
Thanks so much! I find this kinda stuff very interesting
What Grant's Gazelle subspecies live in the Serengeti? I've seen many Roberts gazelles. But I've also read that Raineys Gazelle occur here.
They are more #zebras.
Steenbok? Duiker? I'm guessing steenbok because of the bright white belly and overall coloration
Thanks. I love these little guys!
My first #vervetmonkey
Juvenile #topi, hope you aren't lost little guy.
Definitely a spotted hyena. Has the sloped back. Also there appears to be another animal behind it. Likely another hyena.
Probably a falcon or a dove. It has a long tail, and pointed wings. It may be an Amur falcon or another one of the smaller falcon species.
I agree that it's a warthog.
#reedbuck! Are there any mountain reedbucks in the camera trap study area? I've only noticed bohor reedbucks.
#spottedhyena the Serengeti's most abundant large carnivore! Don't go night hiking 😬
#warthog sow with piglets. #babies
Impressive #wildebeest bull.
#impala female. Would I call her a ewe or a doe? I'm guessing ewe.
I love this photo of a #white-stork and #eland.
Lovely female #ostrich walking across the plains.
Ok I'll continue looking at old photos but refrain from commenting on them.
Yes I've noticed that quite a bit. Especially between similar species: francolins, spurfowls, and definitely bustards. 😃
I'm guessing probably a tawny. But be aware there are several other Aquila and Clanga eagles that are similar to tawnys.
Two hippos within five minutes of classifying! Super exciting!
Yay!!! My first hippopotamus amphibius!
Oh sorry was just exploring bird photos and trying to learn the species.
Probably a Black-Winged Kite.
I think this is a black-bellied bustard. They look very similar to Harlaub's bustard.
I think it is a female black-bellied bustard.
This is a White-Bellied Bustard.
It might be an oxpecker
I agree that they are coqui francolin.
Ecologically they are very different. But that basic antelope shape is suited for many habits and habitats.
A lion in its kingdom
They look like topi to me. But it is really hard to tell.
Eyes look like they are forward pointing. Probably a carnivore species.
That is funny. Reedbuck laying down? Could be a small carnivore. White-tailed mongoose, genet? Looks at its little ears also.
I see two zebras to the left, two buffalo in the center, a wildebeest in the center, and a zebra moving to the right of the tree.
I agree that it is a giraffe. On the third frame I see spots.
My first aardwolf!
