Yellow Mongoose, red sand desert

The Yellow mongoose blends perfectly with the red sand of the Kgalagadi desert.  This species is most frequently seen on its own, such as this individual that I photographed in 2007, but apparently they are happy to share burrows with ground squirrels and meerkat.  The mongoose warren mostly consists of between 5 and 10 members that each move off in its own direction above ground.
