Leopards can swim when they need to, such as to reach an island or cross a river. Jaguars are superb swimmers and go diving for food, such as caimans and large fish.

Green keeper and club captain Jean Rossouw, 30, filmed the leopard on the third tee of the Skukuza Golf Club in South Africa. The course is located within the Kruger National Park and lions, leopards, rhinos, elephants and buffalo - are no strangers to the course. He said: 'It's the only golf course in the world where you can possibly encounter the big five while playing golf.'

 

[loved watching the video]

Celia - What a wonderful contribution of all those beautiful creatures. I love the Penguines, they look like a couple of Nuns strolling along the beach.

LOL  Yes Hola I thought those two looked like Darby and Jones walking along the pier!  LOL

 

Glad you enjoyed them also RnR glad you have also.

 

  This is what I make up for the cats, there are two grass patches for them as they are indoor cats and they love to nibble on the grass.   I plant seed in and within days the seed pops up!     They love it.

 

Old Irish Goats Return to Hills of Dublin After a Century to Join Firefighting Brigade –And They’

After the peninsula on Howth’s Head caught fire last year, pouring clouds of black smoke over the financial district of Ireland’s fair capital, city planners knew they needed to take a sterner stance on out-of-control weeds.

So they hired a crack team of landscapers led by a dedicated forewoman to manage the weeds after quickly began to grow back over the firebreaks that had been dug.

The Old Irish Goat is, amazingly, not the name of a pub, but a critically endangered species that was Ireland’s naturally-adapted breed, which had not been present in these hills in over a century.

It is their ceaseless munching of local species that make them ideal for the job of de-weeding, and for the next three years in their new home their appetites will become the ultimate fire brigade.

Because the goat had been bred out of existence in captivity, and only roams remote hillsides in small numbers, an organization called the Old Irish Goat Society has been dedicated to keeping their DNA free from domestic goat genetics and happily supplied a small herd of 25 to take over as Howth’s Head new ‘firefighters’.

The Old Irish Goat with short legs, large horns, a thick coat, and small ears worn in the pricked position. They’re perfectly adapted to life on the Irish hills.

“Our goats come from the mountains and eat whatever’s there, scrub, heather, gorse. They’re the most suitable for this task,” the Old Irish Goat Society’s chair, Pádraic Browne, told The Guardian.

“We’re giving our beautiful little creatures a job to do, which they’re doing. They’re not just a tourist attraction, they can earn their keep.”

Howth herd – Old Irish Goat Society

Currently the firefighters consist of 14 nannies and 11 kids, to be added to with adult males until it grows to about 100 goats—a necessary reinforcement as the strength of Irish wildfires on Howth and elsewhere have been growing over recent years.

As strange as it may seem in a country as seemingly wet and cloudy as Ireland to have multiple firefighter units for a single city, the unique solution gives the chance for a largely forgotten piece of wild natural heritage to raise awareness of the fascinating breed on its own behalf.

Brilliant photo Celia ... yes it's a long time since Foxy posted ... wherever she is hope she's OK.
