YELLOW MONGOOSE Cynictis penicillata.

Image taken in Botswana near Lebala Camp, Linyanti Marshes in July 2014.

This particular specimen was only visible for a couple of seconds before vanishing into the undergrowth so I was pleased to capture anything at all.

Kwando Safaris own ' Field Guide to the Mammals of Botswana', describes this species as being "uncommon and that those found in Northern Botswana have a greyer tinge to them with shorter tails that lack the white tip. Generally yellow mongoose in this region are also slighter in appearance than in other locations".

This image was taken from about 25 yards in very bright sunlight at 15.30 and the settings were 400mm, ISO 100, f/7.1, 1/400. Medium crop otherwise as taken.
