When Steven got home from his trail on Saturday, he brought back some amazing footage! And the first time we got this animal on our trailcam: an African Civet! I have been hoping to get one of these shy nocturnal animals on our camera, but the footage Steven got last week is absolutely spectacular!
I always believed these animals liked to keep away from humans, but Steven has been seeing this boy around his trails camp often! So he put our Trailcam up at a place he frequents and well, just wow! The African Civet is all over, up and down, sniffing the ground, sniffing the camera! For minutes he is allowing us a good look of an animal you don’t see very often! There is even some footage of a little genet! Have a look at the video I made! I hope you love it as much as I do! ( Please ignore the time stamp! I forgot to set it again after I charged the batteries!)
Unfortunately, there is something not lekker with my new Technaxx mini Trail camera’s sound. I tested it by talking directly into the microphone and I can barely hear anything. I think you will agree with me that the sounds of the bush is one of the things that is so nice about the trailcam footage. Especially if your heart longs for Kruger! So I have decided to send it back to Holland. Which is a total bummer. I will have to save up for another, better quality camera!
Have a lovely week everyone!
