Day 2 · Discover South African animals

The blue crane is the national bird of South Africa. Blue cranes are large, blue-gray birds. They stand about 39 to 47 inches (100 to 120 centimeters) tall.

They have long, thin, dark legs, a thin neck, and a white spot on the head. The long wing feathers reach almost to the ground. Like all cranes, blue cranes are terrestrial (ground-living) birds. They eat plants and small animals, such as insects, worms, and fish. Males and females look the same. Both sexes help to build the nest and hatch the chicks.
The female lays two mottled, cream-colored eggs at a time. The nest is very shallow. The eggs hatch after about 33 days. Blue cranes are birds of the dry grassy uplands, usually the pastured grasses of hills, valleys, and plains with a few scattered trees.

The springbok is the national animal of South Africa. This is a small antelope. It measures about 30 inches (75 centimeters) high and weigh about 90 pounds (40 kilograms). Its back is reddish brown. A dark line separates the brown color from the white underside. It has a dark stripe across the face. Both sexes have horns. The horns of the rams (males) are thicker than those of the ewes (females). It has a pocket-like skin flap that runs from the middle of its back to its tail. It can reach speeds up to 90 km/hr (56 mph) and it is among the top ten fastest land animals in the world.
The springbok eats grass and leaves. It can go for a long time without drinking water because it gets enough moisture from leaves. It drinks water when it is available. It lives in the grasslands and semiarid regions of South Africa.

The Cape cobra is a large snake of southern Africa. It is one of the deadliest snakes in the region. The scientific name of the Cape cobra is Naja nivea. Cape cobras are found in large parts of the Western Cape province. They live in a variety of habitats, from savanna to desert and semidesert. Cape cobras are about 5 feet (1.5 meters) long. Females are slightly smaller. Their colors vary greatly.

They can be yellow or reddish brown, and even golden, dark brown, or almost black. Cape cobras are shy snakes. They eat live prey, such as mice, lizards, and small mammals. Cape cobras lay between 8 and 20 eggs at a time.

The forest shrew or Myosorex varius is the world's smallest mammal. The tiny shrew which looks like a mouse is only 8 cm / 3 inches long and weighs 12 grammes. It can be grey-brown to dark grey-brown. It is a very big eater, and a fierce predator considering its small size. It is an insectivore, hunting insects as well as other invertebrates, like spiders or grasshoppers. It is predominantly noctural. We can find it in the eastern regions of South Africa. This animal lives in temperate forests, dry savanna and temperate grassland.
