SMALL ANIMALS OF AFRICA
The stars and the supporting cast of the animal kingdom
An episode from the series ICONS OF THE WILD
They have one thing in common: you can’t see them when the grass is high. Some are rodents, others carnivores, reptiles or monkeys. One way or another, they suffer from their small size since they have to get by in an environment dominated by giants. They have learned to survive by exploiting whatever resources their tiny habitat is providing for them.
Turtles, chameleons, mongooses, squirrels and their likes, all of them had to adapt smartly in order to survive standing less than 30cm from the ground.
