Hi Guys,

Thought I'D add to this =)
Badger and Serval were seen together having a stand off, on the H-10, and the Bush Pigs came running out of the Croc Bridge Gate, and after 15 minutes managed to dig under the fence and run off into the Sugar Cane plantations.

What do you think is the rarest mammal in all of SANParks? I have a few ideas, but I would first like to hear your's.

I suppose there are a fair number of pangolin around Sanparks but they are just very difficult to see as they are mostly nocturnal.


Juliana's golden-moles are very rare (critically endangered) and difficult to see, they live completely underground. There is one of only three populations in KNP.

Toko, didn't know about the golden mole and must be difficult to keep track of them.

According to Smither's mammal book, the riverine rabbit, is our most endangered mammal.

The african wild cat I imagine must be threatend, not so much by extinction, but inter breeding with domesticated cats.

My third guess would be the black rhino, they are 1% of what they were at the turn of the century, because of men....

Then would come the sable/roan, havent got a clue...
I have no idea either on lesser mammals either, like mice, rats, etc.
