African Hunters Keep Your Eyes Open
We've all seen pictures of the North American version but this one is defiantly African. The bad news is if Connecticut legislators get wind of this it will be listed on there list with the big 5.
Is that the mythical Kubbit?
Looks more like an Nyabit to me.
StickFlicker you are correct.
Is that bigger than a dik dik?
I saw one of these little horned bunnies run off several warthogs one day while sitting on a waterhole. The make a screaming sound (kinda like a warning) before they charge.
They are on the Class I Cites listing and are considered as endangered in several countries. Normally not seen until mid mornings.
Shot a dozen of them off of a waterhole once. Smaller than a dik.
The outfitter needed some swizzle sticks for sundowners and gave me a (take) permit.
Found out later they are indeed endangered because the horns can be used for sex rites and the natives will pay with corn for them.
