Do you need an animal to be identified?

Post your photo here.

Ad as much relevant info as possible. Where did you see the animal, what time of year was it, what was it doing, was it alone ....

Hi all, could someone please help to ID him.

We saw him on the road, early in the morning, in the Berg.

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.

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:
