Thought my eyes were deceiving me for a moment last night, but there was definitely something scuttling along by Orpen...

Here's a no-animal shot for comparison

Then a couple of the animal in question...

Anyone got any thoughts on what it might be? Mongoose? Genet? :hmz:

I'm inclined to think that this is not Kibo. Fiscal flycatcher maybe? :hmz:

Not totally sure... wondered whether it is some kind of weaver - maybe a young one? There's a lot of weaver nests to be found around the main camp area behind the cam.

Hi Richprins!

Yeah I think I'm inclined to agree with you... though the pangolin idea from Wildlover is an interesting thought :D
