A common resident in Okavango and to me a funny looking creature that reminds me of dodgems, or bumper cars, when their tail is raised during their escapes. They live a precarious life as they’re prey to lion, cheetah and leopard.

This one is checking out elephant dung at a waterhole inundated with parched elephants, and with four panting oxpeckers on the back looking for opportunities in the form of blood from the elephants or other parched visitors, or the insects pestering them.
