We found this little mammal (approx 15cm from nose to tip of tail near some caves on a beach in Knysna, South Africa. Does anyone know what it is?
looking at the proportion of the head to the rest of the body this looks like a very young mammal, possibly not even weaned. I certainly looks like a rodent.
Thanks John, we thought so too. I might try one of the local museum or Universities too. It's not like anything I've seen whilst living in South Africa.
Perhaps it may be a Dassie ,rodent like mammals related to Kangaroos apparently .
