Killer Bees, Tsessebe and Dwarf Mongoose

There are three more additions to the gallery today. The Common Tsessebe which is the fastest antelope in Africa, reaching speeds of over 90kmph. The Dwarf Mongoose is especially common in areas with large numbers of termite mounds as this is their preferred choice of place to sleep.

These were photographed in the humidity of the jungle on the Osa Peninsula.
