    Really interesting to me as we were there at the same time, with vastly different results … We did not see the Blanford’s Fox at the respective site, neither have we seen any Honey Badgers or Caracals, any Gerbils, ANY cetaceans – or Tahrs for that matter (but we did not talk to any locals for information, which seems to be a requirement). So our list would be Red Fox, Wolf, Striped Hyena, Arabian Jird, Arabian Gazelle, Common Genet, Small Mouse-tailed Bat and that’s it. Yes, we have spent only two weeks there and gave a lot of time to birding, but it still shows how terribly we such at mammalwatching 🙂

    Nevertheless, one of the most intriguing things to me in this report is the brief mention of the White-tailed Mongoose – this is a species that should occur there but I don’t think any report ever mentions it. Now the mystery of whether it occurs or not seems to be solved.
