Description:

on returning to the house after a few weeks absence the first thing I noticed in the hallway was the disembodied tail (photo 2), look carefully in the top right corner and there is a pad, just a pad, no foot - curious. The torso was nearby complete with front legs (& feet) but strangely and abruptly missing pelvis and hind legs, note the second rear foot (in tact this time) just below the jaw to bottom left in the 1st photo.

It fell into our pool, not sure what it is. We have Dassies in the area but it's not one. I was thinking Cane Rat but it's got a much nicer looking face. It's quite big and we can't see the teeth. Shame!

Description:

Seen out of a window in Balule in Kruger. Failed to match it to any common form of antelope, so I'm assuming it's some morph of bushbuck I'm not familiar with. If anyone has similar or dissimilar ideas, I'd be interested to hear.
