The wave is long, probably the longest barreling wave in the world.Some people call it the best left in the world, others call it the most technically demanding wave they have ever surfed, and others - surfers on the wrong side of 30 who have been pole-axed and pile-driven for want of two perfectly apt clichés - call it a close-out.

Rhino fact The white rhino was once on the brink of extinction with only around 50 individuals left in the wild! Rhino fun fact Also known as the square-lipped rhino, thewhite rhino uses its flat, square lip to effectively cut and eat grass, as it is a grazer, and only eats ground vegetation (compared to the black rhino, which is a browser and uses its hooked lip to pick at bushes and low branches for food.)
This Rhino is one of the lucky ones at an age of 35years. It was a blessing to see this one in the wild.

Chamaeleo namaquensis is one of the largest chameleon species in southern Africa, and reaches up to 25cm in length. Its tail is far shorter than its body and than those of other arboreal species of chameleon.
The Namaqua chameleon has EVOLVED several adaptations to cope with desert conditions; they excrete salt from nasal glands to conserve water, and dig holes to aid in THERMOREGULATION
They also use their ability to change colour to aid in controlling temperature, becoming black in the cooler morning to absorb heat more efficiently, then a lighter grey color to reflect light during the heat of the day - or showing both colours at the same time, neatly separated left from right by the spine.
