The Ugly Five :-)
The Big Five are very famous. But there are also the Ugly Five!
For guests it is a bit of harmless fun to guess which of the many animal species on Thanda qualify for that very special honour. The Blue Wildebeest (or Brindled Gnu) is one of the Ugly Five. In most human eyes they would certainly not qualify for a beauty contest :-). Blue Wildebeest are a very common antelope on Thanda. They are also one of the major menu items for our Lions.
Stay tuned over the next few days to meet the other four!
