Another mongoose also darted past one of the other cameras. They eat anything from crabs, frogs and fish to rodents, birds and reptiles. They are usually associated with water, but will use temporary streams or ponds. They will sometimes venture a good distance away from the closest water body.
While I do my camera trapping rounds I also try and keep my nose to the ground. I try and keep an eye open for animal signs, tracks and anything interesting that I might stumble upon. At the beginning of the month I photographed this beetle munching away at some pollen at Tygerberg Nature Reserve.
