What a wonderful sighting – tell Alfie I shall now expect him and Terrence to find me one (along with a pangolin) when I come back in November! Oh, and a leopard hoisting a kill in a tree – still waiting to see that after 10 visits!

Lucky sighting- perhaps you’ll see it again. They’re so playful when with others, splashing, diving…..appreciate the information.

Gracious!! I don’t think I have even heard of the clawless otter. That must have been a cool moment. Wish we had been there. Victoria

Not surprisingly Neil and I have never seen a Clawless Otter. So we found the article above absolutely fascinating. Thank you so much, Josh! Wendy M

On my wish list ….
