Hello,
I searched some information on acacia tree rat (Thallomys paedulcus).
It looks like my photo, but it appears that it is not present on the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park.

May be it could be Black-tailed tree rat (Thallomys nigricauda) that resembles and is also present in the area

... but I have not seen it's tail and so i am not really sure with my ID ... :hmz:

Hello.
I need help to identify this rabbit. Smith's or Natal??. (I think Natal by the thick tail, but not sure)
The photo is made in the camp of Mountain Zebra.
A greeting and thank you very much to all.

Hello all
So I was driving along the Rabelais Loop early one morning last week and this guy was sitting right next to the road. Actually sitting there with a pal who had his back to me.

Sorry about the quality of the photograph but I'm still trying to get the hang of this photography thing hey. From what I've been able to find out, my guess is it's a Scrub Hare. Any knowledgables agree or care to set me straight please?

Cheers - Ed

Well Arks thanks, that was what I was wondering as well. The app I have on my IPad seems to think not and the Cape and Scrub Hare look so similar I just dont know.

Cape Hare found in most of SA except Natal and Far North west.
Also in Asia and Europe

You will find Cape Hare on this list (under Hares and Rabbits) of mammals found in KNP.

Hi,
Is this a tree squirrel? Or maybe something else? Seen in northern Kruger park somewhere above Mopani.
