Black cat 05:37.
I’ve seen him lots of times before but never asleep, his brave
00:16 KelKel yes the resident cat many have been talking about. He comes out and all the birds leave. His favorite spot.
Is that the black cat sleeping by the small pool
Waterbuck males have horns but the females dont. So if you see waterbucks with small horns they are young males.
07:30 Beautiful morning. Everything's so lush and green. Several water bucks walking around. Youngstersrunning and playing. One large water buck with large horns. Is that a male? Do the females have smallerhorns?
Henry the hippo was a hippo at Cincinnati Zoo that died in 2017. I think that is where the name came from.
16:39 Mandy, Robert and Alan-thanks for the answer. I was on Kenya comments then and I can't remember where the name came from-it just appeared. I love it and if it is a 'Brit thing', even more fun.
Hi Deborah. Henry was named way back in early 2019 when he first appeared.Sadly I cannot remember the lady's name who christened him. They were heady days when we were getting hundreds of elephants at the waterhole regularly, then Henry appeared. We also used to get regular sightings of Lion in the evenings, Happy days. It is much quiter now, especially with so much rain around. Stay safe.
@"Deborah Schroeder" Hi I think the hippo being named Henry is a Brit thing. I have seen 3 other Hippo's on other cams in Africa.
Hi Deborah. Good to hear from you. I'm sorry you didn't get your vaccination and I hope you don't have to wait too long for it. I did have mine as I'm a healthcare worker. I haven't got the next one until March. I seem to remember that when the waterhole cam was on in Zambia there was a hippo which was called Henry and that name came to the hippo here when the cam there stopped. I might be wrong though as it was talked about a while back. I hope you are Ok with all that is going on over there. Take care
19:41 hey Mandy! Hi to Hetherkins and welcome to Kenya, glad you got to see our resident hippo-Henry. Does anyone remember how he got to be called Henry or who suggested the name? Been to several other sites today and saw many names I know, but they were several months old. Hope we all can get together more often. I missed the cut of 70 for the next round of vaccine so I guess I will be end of February or into March. I will be 70 in April so, just missed it. all stay safe and be careful.
My first hippo!
