Schaapmans' Wildlife Spotting
Scientific name: Cynictis penicillata
English common name: Yellow Mongoose or Red Meerkat
Nederlandse triviale naam: Vosmangoest of Rode Meerkat

Recently I helped organizing an event for WWF Rangers at the Amersfoort Zoo. A great day, full of sun shine. In the middle of all the activities I found some time to shoot some animals. This Yellow Mongoose was basking nicely in the sun. I hope to encounter them in the wild one day!
