So you say it's dusty...

You know I tell a lot of people that it's dusty where we study striped hyenas in Shompole, Kenya but really... no one gets it. People say, "oh yeah I saw a dust devil on the road once, it was huge." I just sigh, there's really no pressing the issue without visual evidence. So without further ado:


Still want to visit?

Great video, Joey. Really captures Shompole :)

Does all turn to mud when it starts to rain?

Joey said...

You bet. Look for my follow up story: "So you say it's muddy..."

Hey Joey,

Love the video...especially with that tune. Now you need to add some sort of 40 degree C factor to the dust images.

I have a couple videos of the puppies...tiny little guys stirring up a ton of dust...

How ARE the puppies?

How are the stripes?

Pups are good. Stripes are good too.

Bucket and Monster will no doubt reproduce some day soon leading to some sort of two-headed monster dog with the intelligence of a goldfish, but alas... these things happen.

They do well, however, chase baboons everyday.
