Mongoose


Well we are back at Port St Francis this weekend, but no sunrises or reflections today. We met this mongoose on our way through Jeffreys Bay when stopping to look in at Super Tubes, the world famous surfing spot. It was really a treat seeing this guy as they are generally very shy.

You can check out some more pics of this little guy at St Francis Daily Photo.

Lovely photo Max-e. All the wildlife you see just walking around amazes me and gives me hope for the survival of these animals. He is a gorgeous creature and I love the white tip on his tail.

Great shot, never seen one before, probably cause they are so shy.

I have never seen a mongoose before either. Really nice closeup.

Hi all thanks for the comments. Life has been very hectic this past week and I have had little time to comment or visit.

These guys are usually vey shy, so this was very special.

Max-e by the title I thought it was a bird, but then when I scrolled down, to my surprise, wow, what a cute animal. Very nice close shot. Anna :)
