This is also the last Tygerberg post for a while. I've started camera trapping at a new location that will hopefully keep me busy for a while. Unfortunately you'll have to wait until early next year for the firsts posts from the new location to appear. If all goes well I might do a few posts earlier about any wildlife I might spot during the holiday season.
First up from Tygerberg we have a Honey Badger. This is the first time I've camera trapped one during the day, which is great. Unfortunately there is a lot of motion blur. I would have loved to see that facial expression more clearly!

Next up are some interesting Caracal shots I got during my most recent stint at Tygerberg.
