There is a world somewhere between reality and fiction. Although ignored by many, it is very real and so are those living in it. This forum is about the natural world. Here, wild animals will be heard and respected. The forum offers a glimpse into an unknown world as well as a room with a view on the present and the future. Anyone able to speak on behalf of those living in the emerald forest and the deep blue sea is invited to join.

Pangolins are incredibly rare and elusive animals, which made spending an afternoon with one even more special. ISO 400 f5.6 1/320 Canon 18-55mm @55mm

I have this man, Rich Mthebeni, to thank for spotting the Pangolin we saw. ISO 400 f4.5 1/500 Canon 18-55mm @30mm

Namibia Landscapes and Wildlife Safari: The Other Way Around …

Brendan’s News from Namibia:

When we woke up we made the decision to repeat yesterday’s process of splitting up, but this time the groups swapped around and those that had done the desert trip enjoyed the boat trip this time and vice versa …

Once again the sightings were spectacular, and again the desert group saw Sidewinders, Namaqua Chameleons, Tractrac Chats, and Palmato Geckos. And of course the collection of photographs taken with each new sighting surpassed those taken moments ago.

And those on the boat? Of course they also had a bumper time. There were Pelicans and different Gulls everywhere. The Subantarctic Skuas were also present and cameras filled quickly with all the nonstop action.

And again we regrouped at lunch time, and after eating our fill we headed to Walvis Bay to photograph the beautiful numbers of Flamingos there. A very strong wind blew while we were there and it was rather chilly. But in spite of that there was plenty of action as Flamingos and Pelicans flew back and forth across the bay and against the dunes – and seals cavorted in the waves or huddled on the shore.

We enjoyed our final dinner in Swakopmund, aware that we head for Etosha in the morning …

I would be interested in knowing what you feel to be the most beautiful patterns in nature, ranging from coats to spider webs, and all inbetween. Feel free to post pics of your personal favourites, and/or any others you admire.

I absolutely love the Wild Dog coat...

Venezuelan Llanos
- In the first picture a very rare event to see a Orinoco Crocodile (Crocodylus intermedius) so close to a few Caimans (Caiman crocodilus) because they are natural born enemies and normally the big one will attack and devour the smaller one, I witnessed them for about 25 minutes and nothin happened.
- In the second picture we found a small Green Anaconda about 2,50 mt long with a Green Iguana it recently captured, it consumed the Iguana in 20 minutes.

In Big Ranches named Hatos in Venezuela where animals are not hunted by man you can find big numbers of Caiman (Caiman crocodilus) and Capibaras the largest rodent in the world that weight up to 65 kg.
