Only in South Africa could Elands be house pets

A great way of seeing a side of South Africa that we love - our wildlife...

The thing about being a South African is that it's not just our country's people that are diverse. 

But also our country as a whole. We have the beautiful skyscraper side of city life, the stunning picturesque natural views and beaches, and the wildlife. 

One TikTok page that reminded us that we are never ordinary when it comes to our animal life, show Elands of all shapes and sizes and their life with a family. 

WATCH the video below that shows the TikToker videoing one of the Elands eating some food kept in the lounge.

Of course, mama has her favourites, and the Eland shown in the above video is known as Stompie. 

As she munches on some dry snacks, she is being shunted out. Very gently, mind you - as opposed to the first video that came across our screens, where mama aka the lady of the house shouts at Seun (another Eland) to leave the house.
