Description:

The domestic dog featured in http://www.ispotnature.org/node/741886 has expanded his appetite to include hedgehogs in the garden that he torments until they make a mistake. Fortunately this activity is accompanied by a "hedgehog bark" of low-pitched, single woofs at the sound of which operation Hedgehog Rescue is rapidly initiated. The rescued H'hog is housed in an old cat-carrying basket for a day or two to ascertain if it is injured and then released into a dog free area (photo 3).

Description:

Travelling across the Karoo, in the middle of nowhere, a peculiar "stone" in the middle of the road caught my attention , and closer inspection confirmed that it was indeed a terrapin, which was duly photographed and moved to the side of of the road, in the hope it would find somewhere safe to burrow down, as the area was extremely dry at the time.
