my son's South African Report Empty
PostSubject: my son's South African Report   my son's South African Report EmptyThu May 16, 2013 6:23 am

So my 8 year old son Connor has to do a report on South Africa--of course I am all excited until my wife reminded me it was Connor's report, not mine. Among the things to research: languages, flag, holidays, climate, etc. and, of course, wildlife. As part of his report he needs to do a visual. "We" came up with the idea to showcase 3-4 animals that live ONLY in South Africa. I want our brands to represent these animals. I have come up with meerkats (variety of brands), South African penguin (Schleich)and black wildebeest (CollectA). I have tried researching for a few more animals on the internet, but cannot find a listing. I though one of the genets only resided in South Africa? If anyone has any info on where I can find a listing, or what animal replicas that exist are only found in South Africa, please let me know.

Thanks so much,
Shawn Very Happy

lol! lol! lol!

I am no expert googler, - perhaps it is very old fashioned, but if it was me, I would drag my son to visit a library, and ask for help there scratch

Good luck, - and please let us know what you find cheers

Thanks for the list Andreas. I did find these lists. However, elephants, lions, warthogs, waterbucks, etc are found in other areas of Africa as well. But, Springbok and Meerkats, for example, are ONLY South African species. So the list does help. I appreciate your help Andreas! Sad(o)):
