HIGHLIGHTS OF THE DEPARTMENT OF BIOLOGICAL SCIENCES STUDENTS’ FIELD TRIP - 15th to 20th APRIL 2018 Peter OGEBE* A couple of days were spent at KLNP collecting data and specimens and left on the third day back to New Bussa town. In New Bussa, we went to the KLNP museum in Wawa, New Bussa where we got to see preserved specimens of animals found in the park but not seen at the time of visit.

(left to right): Preserved skins of Roan Antelope (largest antelope in

Nigeria), Western Hartebeest and Kob and skulls respectively. Other Herbivores in KLNP include: Duikers, Bush Bucks etc. Elephants once abundant, have been locally extinct in recent times.

Carnivores are essential in keeping the population of Herbivores in check and there is an abundant supply of carnivores such as: Lion, Civet cat, Serval cat, Jackal, Caracal, Hyena etc.

At the museum: Preserved crocodile skin

Listening to a brief talk by our Guide Mr. Taiye at the KLNP Museum.
