Description: All photo credits go to Maritza, who took these handheld, oblique shots of a buffalo herd. We're testing techniques for determining buffalo demographics. First take high altitude shots to map the extent of the herd, then medium altitude shots to count individuals the clusters, then low-level mug-shots to determine sex and age class. 45 minutes of flying produces 360 photographs that take 2 days to sort and analyse. Tedious, yes, but cheap and quick compared to traditional methods. What remains is to assess accuracy.

Description: Interrupting the beetle string for the sake of an interaction. Suspect either C. cynosuros (which is the one we seem to have in Lusaka, and Kafue) or C. pygerythrus, not sure whether these can be differentiated from a photograph such as this. This one-armed individual rather adventurous, had apparently been seen on the islands for over two years without his arm (difficult to notice, as - like here - usually rested his stump on his right foot. Will attempt to add interactions; he ate Hemidactylus (cf.

Description: This was a surprise. it took me a while to register what i was seeing, but when i did i was elated. the only other duiker we saw here was on a night walk, but this one was in a field in the late afternoon. other mammal sightings included vervet monkeys, scrub hares on our property, a brief black-backed jackal on our first morning, and, best of all, two cape clawless otters swimming.

Description: I have a theory that if I intersperse the ones I haven't the foggiest on between ones that I am confident on, no-one will pick up on quite how little I know... I have no idea on this one. I read a bunch of stuff about squirrels, still had no idea, and essentially picked Paraxerus out of a hat. I'm sorry. I'd say I'm worse at vertebrates than other groups, but my folders are filled with unidentified inverts, too, so that'd be a lie.

The cubs where still very small at that time and rangers told me that the two sub-adult males only recently took over this pride. Now the pride has 23 mouth to feed. It seems they specialized themselves to hunt Giraffe, and they seem resident arrount Namutoni
