Striped field mouse - the Prey

This is one of the many striped field mice that hang around Jack's picnic place at the Addo Elephant National Park, waiting patiently for someone to "accidentally" drop a treat. I can spend hours enjoying the little animals as much as I enjoy the big ones.

Of course being near the bottom of the food chain many fall prey to the local predators, like the Jackal Buzzard in the previous post.

He's a cutie... so busy waiting for crumbs that he forgot to be scared of you and your camera.
