Cute critters

Unread post by Meandering Mouse » Sun Jul 24, 2011 9:48 am

Big animals attract and fill us with awe. My favourites though are the cute critters. They add a smile to my day.

I am going to share some of mine and I would like you to share some of your own "cute critters".

MM, you are right and your photos are very nice. I like your first photo very much as it is really funny. And those tiny little fingers. :thumbs_up:

Thanks Andreas :thumbs_up: , that was taken at Satara camp outside the reception area. I often see the little critter there. He seems to enjoy the rafters very much.

Thanks MM,

all of them are cute but my favourite are the pumbaas and the bushbaby which I hope to admire one day as our attempts to find it up to now failed :wall:

We saw a thicktailed bushbaby in a tree near the restrooms in Satara. I wonder if it could be the same one... however we only saw a ball of fur... :roll: You definitely have the better picture.. :big_eyes:
