50|50 Episode 4 Season 7: 10 March 2016
This week we meet a woman whose walk with her dogs took a dramatic turn for the worse when she found herself face to face with a protective rhino cow and her calf. We find out exactly how fast a rhino can run, and just how fast they can change direction in this exciting instalment of Doosbenoud.
We take a closer look at the regal Kudu in this week’s Wonderwêreld. Their grace and power make them one of SA’s favourite antelope with unmistakable spiralled horns and gentle faces – leaving us with no doubt that they thoroughly deserve their position as the emblem of game reserves throughout South Africa.
These slinky cats may be the fastest land mammals on earth but when it comes to the race against extinction, they need a bit of a helping hand. This is a service being provided by the cheetah meta-population project. Extensive swaps of cheetah between different reserves, not only makes these animals well-travelled but aims to deepen the overall gene pool of cheetah country-wide, making it a ride that could ultimately save the species.
We have a little bit of everything for you tonight on VeldFokus, a young leopard finds a meal with a very dangerous wrapper, another member of Africa’s big five takes on the biggest meal imaginable, and a pair of zebra just can’t seems to keep a straight face!
