  1. ~ This June, 2017 news article published in the Bangalore Mirror tells that a team of conservationists and researchers intended to document the distribution of leopards around Bangalore, India, but additionally had other wildlife sightings of interest. The Nature Conservation Foundation and the Karnataka Forest Department expressed elation at documenting the unexpected presence of honey badgers, chinkara and smooth-coated otters.
  2. ~ This April, 2016 article from the Moroccan birding and ornithology publication MaghrebOrnitho tells of field research in the Aousserd region, very near Mauritania, in far southern Morocco, an area also claimed by the Sahrawi Arab Democratic Republic. Despite continuous heavy poaching, various mammalian species were observed and photographed, including with camera traps. A honey badger with cubs, Dorcas gazelle, Barbary sheep, lesser mouse-tailed bat, lesser Egyptian jerboa and Tarabul's gerbil were observed.
  3. Hi all, As I'm starting to plan my South African trip in more detail, I'm wondering what camps offer the most rewarding night drives, in terms of species "frequently" seen, that are not seen usually during the day. Specifically, I'm interested in: Serval, Civet, Honey Badger, Side-striped Jackal, Caracal, Aardvark, Pangolin (I know the last three are almost never seen). Basically, if I had to decide between night drives from Skukuza vs. Pretoriuskop, which would you recommend? What about Satara vs. Olifants vs. Mopani? Note that I'm a lot more interested in seeing nocturnal species that you don't see during the day, than I am in seeing leopards and lions... Any and all input is welcome. Thanks in advance!
  4. The Cape Fox appears to be a docile animal snoozing at the entrance of the den most of the time The Honey Badger is claw and muscle, reputedly fearless and always seems to be on a mission ambling along. On 01 November 2014 we were just south of Leeudril Waterhole in the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park when we heard a commotion. I stopped the car, we could see and hear a Cape Fox barking and a jackal standing in the background. Then from behind the bush a honey badger appeared with another cape fox on his tail We then clicked that the honey badger was trying to dig out a fox cub from the den, the foxes were at him and the opportunist jackal was waiting for anything that may come his way. The action was on Sharifa's side and she was getting the shots. I tried to get some video footage round and pass her as the audio for this sighting has to be heard. The Foxes worked perfectly as a team and while one kept the badger busy from the front the other tried to get a some bites to the rear. They also retreated swifly if the badger turned on them. One cub lost his nerve, emerged from the den and ran down the road Another emerged from one entrance and scooted down another The Foxes kept at the badger The badger is frustrated and driven away and the brave foxes save their cubs
  5. Hi, y'all: So I've been getting some really interesting preliminary data from my project! It's predominately, of course, a lion/leopard/cheetah project, since we're partially funded by the Big Cats Initiative, but I've been collecting general information about predation incidents, herding practices, etc. I've found a number of incidents here in the TransMara of honey badgers breaking into bomas (either by digging under the fence or by breaking in through an un-reinforced door) and absolutely wrecking livestock; interestingly enough, these incidents seem to disappear as we head up the Oloololo escarpment to the Mara North. I was expecting to see some honey badger problems, but in certain areas, they seem to be coming in as maybe the #3 predator for shoats (read: sheep & goats), behind leopard and hyenas! It's been kind of interesting/surprising. Anyone have any honey badger insight to share? Also -- I haven't yet been able to see one of these buggers; but judging from the horror stories of being attacked/chased, I'm not sure I want to!
  6. Last night, Graham Simmonds, manager at Mombo posted on Facebook that he'd had honey badger visitors in the office: So I shot him a message asking for photos, he hadn't taken any but instead set up a camera trap and said let's wait for the results. Here they are... So if you are going there soon, make sure to ask Graham where you can see them at night. Matt
