One of the “Small Five”!

Sometimes it is a good idea to stop, get of the vehicle and have a look at the small things in life.

This Leopard Tortoise – one of the Small Five – was moving across the road. We got out and observed this small creature for a while.

The Thanda guests on my vehicle loved the encounter.

Do you know the other four “Small Five”?  If yes, post them in a comment!
