Giraffes Eat Bones--and Other Things I Learned on Safari [Slide Show]

The amazing things I learned about animals while on safari in South Africa

Kate Wong

Forgive me. This post is a bit self-indulgent. But I recently returned from a reporting trip to South Africa for a story on some extraordinary human fossils (more on that later), and while I was there I got to see some wildlife—exciting stuff for a city mouse like me. Going through my photos reminded me of the things I learned about the amazing animals there, and I thought I'd share some of them. I took these photos in two locations: the John Nash Nature Reserve, located 30 kilometers north of Johannesburg, and the Madikwe Game Reserve, which borders Botswana.
