Rukwa: two species of galagos pictured in 2014
If we knew that the lesser and larger galago species were present for many years through direct night observations, it took us several years to obtain the first pictures of a large-eared greater galago (Otolemur crassicaudatus) in 2012 in Rukwa - see a precedent post here. We managed to photo-capture several individuals during the 2014 session in Rukwa.
Among interesting results in the 2014 Rukwa GR campaign was the capture of several pictures of what should be Northern Lesser Galago (Galago senegalensis).
The results reveal that our new Bushnell Trophy Cam are very sensitive and are better to capture fast moving animals compared with Cuddeback capture model. Our only regret is the poor quality of LED flash night pictures.
The following pictures show some of these folks. You will have to look with caution to see where the galago is, but I can ensure you, it is there!
