Waterbuck

a picture of something

… in Kruger Park. Waterbuck have a neat adaptation: Nasty tasting subcutaneous fat. It is said that lions and leopards avoid them for this reason. I assure you, however, that they do not avoid them totally. In fact, I’m not sure if it works at all. They seem to be hunted in reasonably close proportion to their numbers in the environment.

But then you have the lions all going “ick, ick … ptui … why do we kill these tings again?”
