Bosveld Zebras

Zebra

NATUURRESERVAAT – Die zebras op Leeupoort is die gewone zebras. Die kwagga is `n sub-spesie van die gewone zebra. Die hings maak vir hom `n harem van merries bymekaar. Die eerste merrie is die alpha merrie en die nuutste merrie staan die laaste in die ry. Die reun verdryf die ander reuns sodat hy die merries net vir homself het. So `n harem kan vir jare stabiel bly. Wanner `n zebra op sy gemak is staan sy ore regop. Wanneer gespanne staan sy ore vorentoe en wanneer hy kwaad is wys sy ore agtertoe.

Leeupoort: Wildebeest

Blouwildebees

LEEUPOORT – Wildebeest are known for their annual migration to new pastures, however at Leeupoort they do not migrate due to the restrictions of game fences. Wildebeest usually begin their migration in the months of May or June when drought forces them to go on the move. The reason that the wildebeest is a migratory animal is because the grass that it feeds on is not a very good provider of energy and minerals.
