Somwhere on the H1-1 between Mathekenyane and Nlanganeni we met a very entertaining family of dwarf mongooses which was enjoying the sunny morning and we enjoyed it watching them!

This thread needs to have a warning .... for far too much cuteness!!!

Loving all the photo's posted.

Pumba - the 4th pic down of the dwarf mongoose, the little critter looks "surprised" at something. So sweet.

Thank you for sharing everyone.

All of the photos here are wonderful!

I agree, that the cute critters can be just as (or more) exciting as the bigger mammals to spot. That bushbaby is especially sweet, lucky to have seen it and had the opportunity to capture that pose!

Keep the photos coming!

The bird doesn't sing because it has answers, it sings because it has a song.

Hope the mods will forgive me for mixing mammals and webcams but I couldn't resist!
