Iets interessant ...

Post by Frikkiedbr » Fri Aug 23, 2013 9:47 am

Saiga tatarica

http://i1195.photobucket.com/albums/aa398/Frikkie3/Saigatatarica_zpsf56598e9.jpg
Saiga tatarica is the only species in the genus Saiga. Although there is little geographical variation, two subspecies are recognized: Saiga tatarica tatarica (the nominate subspecies, to which the majority of the global population belong), and Saiga tatarica mongolica (endemic to western Mongolia). Grubb (2005) recognized the Pleistocene mammoth-steppe Saiga as a distinct species S. borealis, including the living subspecies mongolica.

The Addax
http://i1195.photobucket.com/albums/aa398/Frikkie3/Herd-of-addax_zps6c94790a.jpg
The Addax (Addax nasomaculatus) is a desert living antelope and is well adapted to its harsh habitat; the hooves are splayed to enable them to travel on sand (5), and these antelope produce highly concentrated urine as a method of conserving water (6). The short, glossy coat is a grey-brown colour in the winter, fading to almost white during the summer months (5). The underparts, rump, limbs, chin, lips and inside of the ears are white, as is the x-shaped blaze on the face (7). There is a tuft of dark hair on the forehead and the horns are long and twisted in both sexes

Markhor
http://i1195.photobucket.com/albums/aa398/Frikkie3/Markhor_zpsa896587f.jpg
The Markhor (Capra falconeri), is the largest member of the goat family and is found in northeastern
Afghanistan, northern India (southwest Jammu and Kashmir), northern and central Pakistan.
There are less than 2,500 mature individuals which continued to decline by an estimated 20% over 2 generations.

Hirola antelope

Perhaps the world’s rarest and most endangered antelope, the hirola is the sole survivor of a formerly diverse group, and is often referred to as a living fossil. Once common throughout East Africa, the species has suffered a devastating decline in the last 30 years, with numbers plummeting from around 14,000 in the 1970s to an estimated 600 today. The surviving hirola are threatened by drought, poaching and habitat loss. Intensive conservation efforts are needed if this rare and beautiful antelope is to survive.

Dankie, die bergbok spesies is onbekend aan die meeste van ons en die addax en scimitar het al so uitgesterf dat min oor hulle geplaas word in natuur tydskrifte.

The Blue buck (Hippotragus leucophaeus) or Blue Antelope, sometimes called the Blaubok is now extinct. It is the first "recent" African mammal which has disappeared from the pages of history. It was a relative of the Sable Antelope and Roan Antelope but was smaller than both species. It was a native of the Savannah on the southwestern coastal areas of South Africa. It is thought that during the ice age, it was spread over a quite big range. The bluebuck would prefer only high quality grasses being a selective feeder.

During the 17th century, it was seen in Europe, but up to that time it had already become uncommon. With more and more land being used for agriculture, its habitat area started disappearing and it became an easy prey for the Europeans, although its flesh did not taste good. Up to the 18th century, it became completely extinct. The remains of all the four species of Blue buck (Stockholm, Leiden, Paris, and Vienna), found in different museums, do not show any blue color coat but it was probably because of their mixture of yellow and black hair.

The length of an adult male blue buck was 8.2 to 9.8 ft (250 to 300 cm) and the female was 7.5 to 9.2 ft (230 to 280 cm) long. The average height till the shoulder level was 3.3 to 3.

9 ft (100 to 120 cm). The length of its skull was about 15.6 inches (396 mm) and the length of its horns was 20 to 24 inches (50 to 61 cm). A mature blue buck would weigh about 350 lbs (160 kg).

During the 17th and the 18th centuries, the Europeans settled in Cape Colony. At that time, the Blue buck was found in the coastal regions to the southwest of Cape Province and to the east of Hottentots Holland Mountains. At that time also, the animal was not common and could be found only in the grassland area which was not more than 4000 km wide. It was found between the plains of Caledon, Bredasdrop, and Swellendam towns.

The Blue buck was found in the rolling grasslands where the land was quite marshy, in the open grounds with long (0.5 to 1.5 mts) tuft grass and in the hillside shrubs. It was also found at higher elevations, up to 2400 m above the sea level. Places near water were its favorite and it would avoid areas where the grass was short.

Water was an important necessity for the Blue buck. Unlike other antelopes, which can live without water and by just sucking the moisture of plants, the Blue buck had to drink water on everyday basis for its survival. It had very selective choice of food and would eat only perennial tuft grass, spear grass, good quality red grass, love grass, and buffalo grass.

The birth mass of one blue buck calf would be 26.45 to 30.86 lbs (12 to 14 kg). Their gestation period lasted for 268 to 281 days. There was no fixed period for breeding but summer was peak time and they would live up to 18 years of age.

Dankie manne, dit was nou lekker om van die uitgestorwe Bloubok te lees. Hulle weet nogal baie van 'n bok wat so lank terug uitgesterf het.

Dankie Frikkie, baie interessant. Jammer van al die bokke wat so deur stropers en ander lapkoppe bedreig word (eintlik maar die hele mensdom in die groot meerderheid), ai ons jagters sou darem wat wou gee om die geleentheid te kon hê om daardie spesies te kon bewaar, voorwaar mooi diere.

Ek wonder nou of mens nie die outjie met 'n dorperskaap sal kan kruis nie- miskien sal die jakkies dan bietjie meer respek hê en versigtig wees. Veral as daai tande tydens die onderonsies bietjie ingelê word.

Ja dis baie hartseer dat ons paar diere so verloor het vir altyd? Jammer dat die mense van daai tyd nie slimmer was nie!? Blykbaar het die bloubok se kleur van sy vel verander as hy geskiet was! Van blou grys na vaal bruin as hy gesterf het! Intressant!

Die Hirola lyk soos baster tussen impala en hartebees? Blykbaar net so 300 in hul gebied Kenia en somalia? Hoogs bedreig! Dankie Frikkie nie eers geweet van die bok!

The zebra duiker is a small antelope found in Ivory Coast, Guinea, Sierra Leone and Liberia.
It has also been recently discovered in south east Guinea. Wikipedia

Daai klein zebra duiker is darem baie mooi. Jammer dat die res van afrika nie soos RSA kan benut en bewaar nie!
