Pretty cool, I was worried it would be one of those cameras where it like "Updates Every 30 Seconds" but pretty much never refreshes and even if it did it would still suck. I can`t wait for it to be daylight there, I`ll get some chips, an watch the watering hole :)

Also - I like the noise of the crickets at night

It`s just hanging out with that gazelle/antelope type thing. Either that or it`s suicidal and is too stupid to keep it`s trunk underwater.

It was cool, because there looked something like a koala, and a croc.

It was helluva slow, so I gave up.
