B5 Sable Twins by CrazyAsian1
B5 Sable Twins
For a split second time slowed to a crawl as Natalie Mbotho exploded from the low brush to ambush her prey, a band of poachers roving through the park. Low hanging branches scratched at her skin as she rushed through the Bush, a carbon blade machete in each hand. She was immediately out paced by her twin partners, Mlungisi and Mondli, two proud grizzled Sable drones. Their curved horns caught the moonlight giving them the appearance of great sickles cutting through the night as they charged ahead.

She was a rogue, a vigilante, as they spoke of her and her colleagues on the encrypted ranger frequencies. Once a ranger herself, she had grown tired of seeing the poached animals, the corruption, and the poachers walking away free. Seeking to make a difference Natalie went off the grid and took the fight directly to the source busting small poaching groups and anonymously reporting animal sightings to anyone who would listen. 

Everything changed when the twins found her. They represented a greater power at work within the reserve, a spirit within that wanted to fight back and protect the animals they represented. They were looking for a kindred soul to fight with them. Two years ago she was recruited and she smiled at the thought of it, the wind rushing rushing past her face as she sprang in to join the only fight that really mattered to her.

B5 Kudu Twins by CrazyAsian1
B5 Kudu Twins

The sun had begun dipping below the horizon as Jon dropped his pack and perched on a jutting rock formation. The sky turned a deep red orange as the clouds rolled in dumping heavy rain upon the landscape. The river which marked the border of the reserve gleamed like a vein of hot silver off in to the distance in the last rays of the sun. Jon pulled out his binoculars and began surveying the landscape. As he observed from his position his two partners strode up behind him. 2 Kudu bull drones, Anengoni and Buumi, took up position behind him and began surveying the expanse sweeping with their sensors while networking with other drones in the area.

A rash of poaching had occurred in the area near the river. There were no access roads nor villages near this section of the park and the crocs did a great job of deterring would be poachers from crossing the river. This was not enough to deter all poachers though and recently a handful had succeeded. Jon gave them credit for braving the crocodiles but his admiration stopped there. Calling in his arrival to Ranger HQ he settled in and watched the sun set. His night patrol was about to begin and he would need his wits about him. The Bush held many surprises for both friend and foe alike.


Kudu Drones. While formidable in appearance Kudu drones are typically used for reconnaissance and observation. Theirs horns are long and can pierce most body armor, drone armor, and thin vehicle plating but they will only engage in combat as a last resort. Swift, graceful, and alert they are the perfect eyes and ears for any ranger or research operation.

B5 Eland Ranger by CrazyAsian1
B5 Eland Ranger
In the world of Big Five drones are not used exclusively for anti-poaching. While protecting the animals is top priority, monitoring them and their whereabouts is equally important, if not more so. In fact there are more drones employed in observational roles than anti-poaching.  Such drones typically take on the appearance of non-threatening animals such as birds, small mammals, and the numerous species of Antelopes known to inhabit the various regions of Africa. 

One such drone type is the Eland variant. Large, imposing, and graceful, Elands are used for overt observation/patrolling operations. Not suited for combat they merely observe and gather data on the animals they are tasked with watching. Typically an Eland unit with come with a suite of Oxpecker observation drones to enhance its capabilities. These extra sets of eyes boost it's effectiveness in field. The horns are there for show, but if a situation arises demanding an Eland to engage in combat they can be used effectively.  

Elands and other non-combatant drones are usually employed by conservation groups, wildlife research organizations, and NGO's. Though still expensive to purchase and maintain they are cheaper than a typical anti-poaching drone such as a Lion, Leopard, or a Buffalo. Some would argue that anti-poaching operations would not be needed if the animals were watched at all times by a fleet of observational drones. The debate is on going.

What happened to Cecil the Lion made me really wish some of your Big Five drones (and their handlers) had been there. Someone get to work inventing those...

You are a great animal artist. I like your way of passing messages with pictures. There were some toys I used to play when I way young called Zoids. Your work resembles those obsolete mechanical animals. Thank you for your imagination.
