So during this CO-VID 19 time, all you can do is fantasize about your next trip and read up about interesting species….
I read up on the African Striped weasel a bit (just because it’s rare and super cool-looking), and I found out something: could it be that it’s much more common in the Western Cape of South Africa than it is, elsewhere? Still not common by any means, but:
I thought there were few records of this species ever, and I was surprised to see that on Inaturalist, there are a few records of this species from the past few years from the South-Western part of South Africa (in particular Western Cape province) with way more pictures than I ever thought existed of this species in the wild.
Anyway – just pondering.
Does anyone know anything about this? And of course if anyone has ever seen this species, it would be interesting to hear about it 🙂
Cheers, and stay strong, eh?
