Tuesday Trailcam-Takes: Mammal finds of the week and a 6 months mammal-sightings list, Govuro, Mozambique.

It has been six months since we moved to this cattle farm in the Govuro District of Mozambique. I regularly try to post updates on my trailcam finds, but I have decided to make a list of the mammals I have either seen myself, or the trailcam picked up or other someone else on the farm has seen in the past six months. I have not yet properly identified bats and mice therefore they are not on the list. Any recommendations on comprehensive books to help me identify those are welcome.

Personally seen:

  • Slender Mongoose
  • Banded Mongoose
  • Tree Squirrel
  • Red Squirrel
  • Kudu
  • Njala
  • Impala
  • Grey Duiker
  • Baboon
  • Greater Galago /Thick-Tailed Bushbaby
  • Vervet Monkey
  • Staff members on the farm have seen an Elephant. An elephant or more than one elephant has been through the farm and neighbouring farms on several occasions before the rain.

Trailcam recordings:

  • Porcupine
  • Giant Rat
  • Springhare
  • Scrub hare
  • Grey Duiker
  • Nyala
  • Warthog
  • Bushpig
  • Banded Mongoose
  • Slender Mongoose
  • White-tailed Mongoose
  • Large Spotted Genet
  • African Wild Cat
  • African Civet
  • Greater Galago /Thick-Tailed Bushbaby

Below is my video with sightings of the week! Hope you enjoy 🙂

    What a good idea to compile a list because, over time, one forgets so easily.

      I already almost forgot some. I want to compile lists for the reptiles and birds and whatever I can identify.
