What else is out there at night besides hyenas?







Here are a few photos from our Shompole camera traps to give you an idea of the diversity of life-forms wandering around there at night. See if you can identify all these animals. I'll post answers in my next blog entry.

Oh, lets see..
Serval
Black-Backed Jackal
Crested Porcupine
African Lion
Aardvark
and..
Civet.

That sound about right?

Yep, that's right. Thanks!

Thank you so much for the night pix --- it's very interesting to be able to see what goes "bump in the night" in the Mara, and to be able to observe what we're naturally not supposed to be able to watch.

Hi, Kay.

It's Mike from Ranken Jordan...

Very interesting with the camera traps.

Sorry we couldn't work out anything earlier. If I can somehow manage to pay my own way to get to the Mara--in the next six to 12 months-- is there room for me and my camera for a two-week documentary effort?

(We just won a national award for our Galapagos Islands fundraising video for the St.Louis zoo and UMSL...)

I promise I won't bother you again, if you're not interested...!!

Keep up the good work...
Best,
