African Savanna Ecology

ENV 323/623 at Kruger National Park, South Africa

Welcome to the world Gnu!

During one of the game drives, we stumbled across a recent birth of an African buffalo!! We watched the amniotic sack come out of the mother and watched the little ones first steps. Such a special and magical moment to be a part of. We named the little one Gnu!

Amniotic sack

Not many good photos of the little one – mom wanted her privacy, but the baby is pointed out below!
