Extremely rare a truely wild cat - The Dilmun
The Indian Mongoose
Abdulla was camping in the Saudi desert during last week and photographed this hedgehog. While they are still relatively common there, here in Bahrain they have become extremely rare. While they were found as far north as Zallaq village in the past, they are now confined to the restricted area to the south of the island. I was struck by the size of the ears, a typical adaptation to the desert climate. Their current status is really unknown.
Last weekend Abdulla took myself and some visitors from UAE to the southern section of the island. We got some nice photographs of the Sand Gazelles. Below are just two. The rut will soon be underway.
