What's your favorite watering hole?
Link to a real watering hole. In Africa. Live. With video and sound. And real animals. Best viewing times are dusk and dawn, Africa time (I think it's +7 hours from CST).

Now that's really cool.
I can't open the site in either FF or MSIE,
Holy Crap a Lion!
Oh that was a bush, sorry.
Ralph, from IE it should launch Windows Media Player. I'm not sure if there are other players that will interpret asf format. I'm getting a 750 kbps feed, apparently. And holy crap this place is noisier than my local.
I use IE... I haven't trouble with that link, but I've had trouble with IE playing stuff in the past; there may be a setting somewhere.... I saw a family of dog-like things yesterday- momma, daddy and baby.
Wow. It's night now and they have a night vision cam. I don't see anything, but it's so LOUD. and something invisible is sniffing near the camera.
Watering holes are apparently way to noisy to sleep next to.
I see a giraffey munching on some tree leaves!
Woohoo! This thing is neat! Just saw a herd of (well, 5 or 6) zebras. And here come a couple more giraffes. Also, somebody is controlling the camera, panning around and zooming in and out. Thanks, Doohickie!
Awww, now i see some cute little bambi deer thingeys.
Must be a zoo or sanctuary.
Interesting. Caught a glimpse of several different animals, but they are all either camera shy or worried about being eaten, because they comes, and then they goes.
Wow. A Llama.
the turtles are totally doing it.
For those who may have uncooperative browsers, here's the work-around: Open Windows Media Player, right click on the top bar, select file, URL, and paste in "http://live.wildlife.wavelit.net/451OK?MSWMExt=.asf" Watch critters.
Puku and dik-dik and oryx, oh my! Another workday wasted - thanks!
Works fine with mplayer. Very nifty.
First monkey to go to the watering hole and post a shout-out billboard in front of the camera wins a year's supply of bananas.
Some fucktard just blended a cheetah.
Wow. That ribbon worm can really book it.
Anybody else hear something akin to voices on shortwave radio there (or possibly a parrot or two repeating a few stock phrases ad nauseum?)?

Humid green daybreak Goose trumpets indignantly Monkeys scuttle past
Who or what is controlling the camera? It seems to randomly pan and zoom on nothing. But the sounds are lovely. It reminds me of my old home in the woods. I never realize how I miss the sounds of so many birds until I go back there. I may just leave this on to sleep to. Birds are all wrong, but it sounds like home. Nice find!
Oooo! A vulture!
Really? I thought it was a baboon on that branch.
I may just leave this on to sleep to.
I thought the same thing, then realized Mrs. Doohickie would divorce me if I did this.
Wow. A goat.
For more information about this web cam, its location and so forth,
and click on the Nkorho Stream link.
I think it was a baboon, after all. 'Cause I don't think vultures have arms. Thanks for the link, Ralph!
There's a beagle sitting on a branch, and he's got a very strange look in his eyes! WTF?
WoooW! A duck!
For real, a beagle?
Probby a WWI flying ace.
Werewolves in Nkorho Pan... awooooo
Live blogging! There really are dik-dik like things over there right now! Like about 20 of them! It's herdoriffic!
*looks nervously around at the bellowing Fish Tick
RalphTheDog- Thanks! I was wondering where that link came from!
Well, I finally saw something more than hyena/jackal thingies: Just before dusk I saw a herd of wildebeast, an antelope and an elephant. So, yeah, it's kinda cool (I posted this with the hope it was but without really knowing!)
What are those little furry things that scuttle in 2s-3s?
Almost dawn - prime elephant viewing time.
A baby Zebra! - a Zolt?
Yay! Glad somebody else saw 'em.
I saw them too! And I saw a pink elephant as well! Hic.
Fish, I don't think they're monkeys, they were on the ground, scurrying sneaky-like.
Sorry GramMa- wasn't answering you then, just squawking (some 11 hours later) at finally seeing monkeys. I hear there are foxes in the area, maybe that's what you saw?
MonkeyFilter: it's so LOUD. and something invisible is sniffing near the camera.
I haven't seen any more little Sneaky Scurryers lately. Sort of reminded me of how a marmot moves. I'll keep watching. How come all I ever see of zebra's is their backsides?
