Visitors will notice that animals like buck, tortoises, snakes and other ‘wild’ (non-tame) animals are regularly spotted in town. Nature Conservation or the local snake catcher are on speed dial to remove an ‘unwelcome’ visitor from a house to relocate it while bokkies graze or cross the streets in broad daylight.
Neil Marwick took this beautiful photo of his bush buck visitors recently and commented: “Granny, aunt, granddaughter and mother sharing breakfast of apple, carrot and vegetable trimmings.”
So, if you are driving, please be on the lookout for these ‘locals’ as well as tortoises as Stilbaai loves having them here!
