The Ostrich (struthio camelus) is a member of a group of birds known as ratites, that is they are flightless birds without a keel to their breastbone. Of the 8,600 bird species which exist today, the ostrich is the largest. Standing tall on long, bare legs, the Ostrich has a long, curving, predominantly white neck. The humped body of the male is covered in black patches and the wings and tail are tipped with white. The female is brown and white. These huge birds, which sometimes reach a height of 2.6 m and a weight of 135 kg, cannot fly, but are very fast runners.

These peaceful animals are reasonably common in the region and seem to be on the increase in recent years.
They average around 30kg in weight with only the rams having horns which curve forward at the tips. They are found very strictly in areas with steep sloping hills. With their specialised digestive systems they feed almost exclusively on grass and can utilise even the coarse winter grasses.
Groups of 2-5 ewes have territories that they occupy. Rams move around singly and over wide areas.  They have a daily routine – at night they move to the tops of the hills, to be safer from predators like caracal. At dawn they move downhill to the slopes to feed until the heat of the day, when most time is spent lying down resting. In the late afternoon they feed intensively while moving uphill.

An interesting fact is that the juvenile males look like females. It is thought that this camouflages the young males and protects them from the jealous eyes of the dominant bulls. The young males are therefore allowed to grow up peacefully under the protection of the herd.

Warthogs are day animals and spend most of their time looking for food. They are normally found in family groups. Warthogs have the peculiar habit of kneeling on the front knees while feeding and foraging in a localised area. They shelter in burrows at night, which they enter tail first. Socially, three main groups are encountered, namely solitary boars, bachelor groups and matriarchal groups. Matriarchal groups consist of adult sows with their young and yearlings. Boars play no part in rearing piglets and seldom associate with sows outside the mating process. Promiscuous, both sexes will mate with more than one partner. Warthogs can frequently be found at waterholes where they dig in the marsh and wallow in the mud with obvious enthusiasm.
