We were back at Ganora Farm last week updating our research in the Karoo and came across this strange creature. We had taken a short walk above the cottages to get some cellphone signal and stretch our legs after a morning of desk top work and came across a pair of oddly matched eyes peering up out of the grass. I thought ‘he is an owl’ but Kate took one look at the photo and said ‘looks more like a frog’. So let’s settle on a frowl.
A frowning frowl – probably the fraught remains of the last person to go up there hoping for a signal: he’s still waiting!
