And I guess it's safe to guess, that there weren't any drop outs from the coalition and newcomers into it. :lol:

Sorry its been a few days since I posted due to the move from Pretoria to Ballito.

Day 8 - 10th October - (Continued)

After the fantastic cheetah sighting we continue south back to Grootkolk reaching camp just before 11am. Since we had not had breakfast we elected to have a type of brunch this involved bacon, egg, cheese grillers, tomato and toast. After brunch we chilled around camp and spotted the following:

Stripped Mouse

The seasons in the Succulent Karoo are dictated by the rain that occurs in winter. Winter is pretty cold, with temperatures below zero, which might explain why breeding of the striped mice (and most other animals) only starts in spring. Spring is characterized by a high percentage of plant cover, mainly wildflowers and herbs. In September (spring on the southern Hemisphere), Namaqualand is covered in a colourful coat of yellow, blue and orange, the colours of hundreds of species of wildflowers. However, this richness is of short duration, and in November the country turns desert again. The short season of the plenty determines also the breeding season of the mice. The breeding season is only 3 months long, enabling females to get 2-3 litters.

HELP - The mouse appears to be eating this, why, what?
