The remains of the water buffalo by the size of the horns it was quite old so would not have been eat by humans,the whole corps was left to rot in the reed beds.

Not sure what it is . it flew in landed on my desk then then jumped off like a cricket.

Not sure if this is a silver fish its got some long antenna though
have not seen any snails here not in this area its also to hot for snails that live on the land and eat our crops. . so these must be water snails there are hundreds of the shells on the banks after the Nile receded.

Grasshopper this landed in the canal and was quickly devoured by a fish.
