Necks of the kudus have a bluish tint

10 October 2013

This video was taken in the early afternoon and shows the gate to the passive capture boma behind a dip container that is filled with antelope pellets. A herd of young greater kudus and a donkey are feeding on antelope pellets from the dip container. The necks of the greater kudus have a bluish tint because they rub against bushes to mark their territories. The kudus appear to be relatively tick-free, possibly because of the acaricide in the dip container that rubs off against their throats when they stretch over the rollers to feed on the antelope pellets. The video clearly shows the throats of the donkey and kudus touching the rollers. A troop of baboons are sitting to one side in the shade of a tree because it is hot in the middle of the day during the summer in the bushveld. The video demonstrates how a variety of animals can be enticed into a passive capture boma with the provision of food, water or a salt lick.

Video interpreted by Prof J du P Bothma.
