Description: Found in pool - no idea how long it had been in: "solid" - dead?. Dried and put in sun with a few earthworms. Took about 10 minutes to come out of torpor (with 3 or 4 short shivering sessions), tried to get out of its icecream tub, swallowed one earthworm like spagettii (too fast to photo), ignored the slug, and when released dug straight down and after 30s was too ensconced to extricate (wanted to move it to its run 2m away - otherwise the dogs may have tried to dig it up). After 10 minutes was gone enough to let the dogs out.

Description: Don't know how common leucism is with Samangos, but this rather photogenic fellow has apparently flourished for many years. Very relaxed, habituated camp troop. Not as pushy as the local Vervet troop with which they might have been fighting (? see injuries), but nowhere near as shy as usual Samangos.
