How to Identify?
For now, I identify this species by type of habitat where I find its burrow usually located in moist, dense, low growing grassland.
We combine physical characterics and behavior patterns with location and seasonal aspects to identify species.
Where & When to Spot?
They are around all year. The only individual of this species I have spotted so far, moved around the entrance of its burrow located close to the large pond in Park Angrignon.
With each photo, we store date and geo-location providing us data about location and season of observation. We also use a tracking utility to save observations in the field when there was no opportunity to take a good shot.
Anything to add, to correct?
