One of Groenkloof NR's major specials.

We decided to see if we could find this one at the Fountains valley after a 4x4 trip through Groenkloof NR over the weekend.

I saw this little fellow last year in the same reserve, for those who might want to try their luck, I entered the reserve via the main gate turned left down the road for about 300 meters and there is a bridge with a stream .It was in this stream fairly close to the main enterance.
