Thank you so much for the great response to my spider and to Cathy and Stan (Holmewood) for my UA so chuffed.
Some more images of the Dwarf Mongoose we came across sunning themselves in the early morning sunshine. This is one of the little youngsters peering out from between his siblings. It was so hard to choose which one to lead with as they are all cute images..
They are common in areas that have termite mounds. The group inhabit a burrow and make use of the termite mounds for this. They live in groups up to 20 individuals and they consist of a dominant pair. Nearby they will make a communal latrine. Dwarf mongoose have a small home range that they mark with secretions from their anal and check glands. Within this range they will have many dens that they can run to for safety. Predators include birds of prey, snakes and other larger predators...
Rob would like to thank all of you for the concern and well wishes during his stay in hospital. He is home and we went for a lovely walk to the sea wall where I took my sunset images from last week.
Have a nice day....
