Tiny Quarrels

Dwarf Mongooses live in close-knit clans, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t the occasional squabble between family members! While walking around Pretoriuskop Rest Camp on a recent visit to the south of the Kruger National Park, I spied two of the tiny tykes continuously working on each other’s nerves, until eventually and inevitably the fight escalated into blows.

    What a great sequence. They can look quite pugnacious even when not actually scrapping like that. Were they vocalizing at all while quarreling? Mind you their expressions speak volumes without needing to add a sound!

    Een moes noodwendig opgee lyk dit. Die white-tail mongoose hier is nog steeds doenig in my tuin. Nou dat ek weet wat dit is, los ek maar. As mens te veel keer flitse skyn en fotos probeer kry jaag mens hom/haar/hulle net weg.

    Hulle het met ons vorige wildtuin besoek die arme mense in die rondawels weerskante van ons omtrent uitgeroei! Nie almal weet van bêre alle kos liewer binne nie. Dit was juis in Pretoriuskop.
