He deserves a bit of teasing since he knows so much of many animals and is still a teenager! Amazing!!

Evening to you all,
Witnessed a Tree Squirrel play around with a very big monitor lizard at Letaba. It all went on on for close to an hour with the monitor lizard following the squirrel all over the tree and when it seemed it had it cornered the little chap leaped over its head and that was it.

Has anyone else witnessed similar behaviour to this before? These two were running up and down the tree and then stretching as far as they could following which they would stick out their tongues :hmz:

PLEASE DON'T FEED ANY ANIMAL IN KRUGER, RESTCAMPS INCL, I KNOW IT'S TEMPTING BUT THINK TWICE!
