Well Rex and Patrick have run their races. Rex got 14 (can’t count the sunset) mammals and Patrick 16 mammals. However, as you all know Pieter and Marc are neck and neck. I have seen the petition to include the bat in Marc’s count, but WE cannot allow it as it was not positively identified. I must admit I have thoroughly enjoyed this race so far. Not just the actual drives, the interaction and the competition, but also the debating and humor that has gone along with it. I am sure that this is going to become an institution over here at WE.
Anyway, here is Rex’s official list:

  1. Human.
  2. Elephant
  3. Slender Mongoose
  4. Wild Dog
  5. Steenbok
  6. Impala
  7. Dwarf Mongoose
  8. Tree Squirrel
  9. Cape Buffalo
  10. Nyala
  11. Greater Kudu
  12. Giraffe
  13. Zebra
  14. Scrub Hare

… and Patrick’s list:
  1. Steenbuck
  2. Human
  3. Impala
  4. Tree Squirell
  5. Dwarf Mongoose
  6. Warthog
  7. Grey Duiker
  8. African Elephant
  9. Greater Kudu
  10. Nyala
  11. Burchell’s Zebra
  12. African Wild Dog
  13. Water Buck
  14. Vervet Monkey
  15. Blue Wildebeest
  16. Leopard
So now WE are going to have two more drives to break the tie between Pieter and Marc. First will be today when Pieter will do his final drive with Lieschen on camera and Marc directing, and then tomorrow Marc will present his final drive with Lieschen on camera while Pieter directs. 
… may the best Ranger win!!!
