Descrição

25 Oct: Long, tidily constructed tube sticking up from a hole in the ground. No inhabitant activity seen.
The tube was removed and left next to the hole.

26 Oct: A new small tube had been started overnight. There had been some fiddling with the original tube.

27 Oct: A portion of the original tube had been cut off and attached to the short new tube.

29 Oct: Three more burrows and grass tunnels found in a 2x2m area around the original burrow.
The tube was removed from burrow 2. On re-inspection 4hrs later the burrow entrance had been concealed by cut grass pieces.
The tube was removed from burrow 4 - on re-inspection the entrance had been sealed with a very strong lattice of transparent threads.

30 Oct: Five more tubes found, total now 9 in an area of 4x4m.

20 Nov: Attempted excavation of larva resulted in the lower half of a larva being recovered.

21 Nov: Larva seen (and photographed) moving bits of vegetation in the early morning (04:53)

22 Nov: tubes continue to be repaired or replaced.

23 Nov: larva excavated in the early morning and housed, with its host plant, in a bucket covered with shadecloth.

28 Nov: a thorough search of the thick grass was done and 5 more tubes were discovered in the 4x4m area. Interestingly, one tube is considerably narrower than the regular sized tubes and another was found of an intermediate size.

Descrição

First known wild observations and discovery of natural fluorescent in an old world mammal or any mammal outside of North and Central America, images of the Springhare taken in August 2019. Incredible to see it’s orange and pink glow firsthand, especially when it wasn’t expected! Accidental discovery whilst out photographing scorpions under UV light

Shot using a Nikon D850 Handheld with a Nitecore Chameleon C6 ( 365nm ) torch.

For anyone interested in February 2020 a Scientific journal was released by a American research group ( no relation to me ) about this UV trait and science behind it from research in museum & zoo specimens in the US.

There are a few more images, but you might be able to imagine photographing a rather skittish nocturnal creature on foot with a UV torch in one hand and a large DSLR in the other during a unexpected encounter whilst also trying to expose a camera correctly for UV light isn’t the easiest thing to do the split second.

Scyrotis - Jumping Bean Moth


Little "jumping-bean" - about 5mm long by 3mm wide - jumping really high and far. Under Searsia lucida (although did not realise the significance of that at the time). Remember seeing these as children and knowing that they contained larvae but did not know the whole story till today - while looking for galls on Searsia for a different observation entirely. Have a look at the Biodiversity Explorer information: http://www.biodiversityexplorer.org/lepidoptera/cecidosidae/scyrotis_athleta.htm

Am now going to keep a really keen lookout for "green" galls and monitor the full cycle if possible :D

Descrição

A movement on the road caught my eye and on approaching was thinking of either something had caught a chameleon or it was injured and thrashing about in death throes. They were absolutely still after this flurry of movement, just eyes moving. One brief flurry again, followed by another long period of almost absolute motionless, another brief flurry and they parted. Never seen one as pitch black as the female, marking around the eyes standing out almost as clearly as under UV light. Both returned to more normal colours rapidly after parting, both removed by hand to the relative safety of near by shrubs. Total time actually witnessed 1 hour and 5 minutes, but I believe from others that they started mating some time before that.
Comments of selling price of a breeding pair shocking at R12 000 or there abouts!

This caught my eye as it was as bright as a cooked lobster and had just emerged from its 'skin'. Wings were only tiny blobs to start with. Quite magical to watch and trust he flew off after I left him on a Watsonia stem. Magriet took pics of the 'skin" and should add an obs.
