The almost white Nguni calf of Napier, South Africa.

In Zulu culture ‘White is the colour of the ancestors, diviners and protection against lightning. As a result of this significance any white calf born in the byre of a commoner was automatically given to the king’.

In Napier, South Africa, recently a virtually white Nguni calf was born. Unfortunately (fortunately for the owner) Shaka Zulu does not live anymore.

Portrait of a Fero Cactus

Good Morning! At last, after so many years, I succeeded in producing a flower. I’m a Fero Cactus and my ancestors originate from Mexico. They also name me Fish Hook Cactus and if you look closely you know why.
