MOUNTAIN REEDBUCK: The best chance of seeing them in #MountainZebra is along the Kranskop Loop, particularly towards the most southern regions. The best viewing times are early mornings or late afternoons when they warm up or graze on the sunny slopes. #LiveYourWild @SANParks

The top one with the straight horns is the Grey Rhebok ..found higher up the MTs on the Plateau basically ..The Mt Reed buck is found further down on the slopes and runs downhill when hunted ..The Grey rhebok runs uphill when hunted ..meat not nearly as good as Mt reed Buck

Wrong people in certain jobs like the 'Ranger ' in charge of the Roan Antelope camp /Breeding program in Kruger has just been fired I am told ..During the Lock Down all he had to do was see that the 20 Roan in the large camp had water ...Too much trouble for the non conservationist ..20 Dead Roan they all died of thirst ..Source News 24 yesterday
