Hello,
I have seen this little one, last August, at night, in a tree at Mata Mata in the KTP.

Can you give me some help for his name ?

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.
http://maps.iucnredlist.org/map.html?id=21692

May be it could be Black-tailed tree rat (Thallomys nigricauda) that resembles and is also present in the area
http://maps.iucnredlist.org/map.html?id=21691
... but I have not seen it's tail and so i am not really sure with my ID ... :hmz:
