The little grebe, also called dabchick, is found on fresh and alkaline lakes. The photos in the slidershow (top) were taken as an adult male shook/stunned/killed a toad and repeatedly threw it into the water for the juvenile to retrieve (Arusha NP, 8-08). The three adults with the monitor lizard were seen in Arusha NP (2-15), courtesy of Stuart Webb. The little grebes with the puff adder were in Arusha NP (11-16), courtesy of Linda Bushman. The other photos were taken in Arusha NP and Ndutu. Click the photo above to see ten enlargements.
