National Park is one of the places where you can observe oryx antelopes indulging in their preference for salty soil. These antelopes have adapted to arid environments and have developed specialized kidneys that allow them to conserve water by excreting concentrated urine. The salty soil provides them with the necessary minerals and electrolytes to maintain their physiological functions.
It’s fascinating how different species have adapted to thrive in harsh environments like the Kalahari. The oryx antelope’s preference for salty soil is just one example of how nature has evolved to ensure survival in these challenging conditions.
