|In Andy's hand - Rondo Dwarf Galago|
Evening started off a little bit quieter trapping wise compared to the last two nights. Only one Zanzibar galago had entered...however, while we starated to process the sampling and realized that this also was one already captured before we heard another trap set off. This was a Rondo Dwarf Galago and from a first glimpse it looked like a young one, i.e. no re-capture. Whilst carrying it back to Andy's tent, where we do the processsing, we heard another trap set off. The one we had was hung from a tree and we went for the new one. Apparently we run an appreciated joint since this also was a re-capture of a Rondo Dwarf. Well, we still had the new young one waiting for us. Or so we thought. It had squeezed itself out of the bag and into freedom. Not to worry though, it'll come back. They all seem to do.

We also had another case of jail brake from one tube trap tonight, or more correctly a break in. Someone had chewed itself through the net in the back of the trap and taken the banana. This has now been fixed with wire net to make it more safer from unwanted in or out breaks. Funny note is that the net on the back is the only part of this trap that I have contributed to assemble...
