'Mystery Animal' Challenge

'Mystery Animal' Challenge

We are pleased to announce the lucky winner of our first 'Mystery Animal' brain teaser is Richard McKibbin. Richard was the first person to correctly identify the acrobatic 'dassie' caught on camera.

But, there are many more weird and wonderful snapshots to entice you with, and to give you a little 'heads up' we can tell you that this month's picture is not the Easter bunny delivering chocolate eggs. The person who correctly identifies the animal in the mystery image will receive a prize, kindly donated by one of our sponsors.

The deadline for entries is March 22nd, and the lucky winner will be notified within a week. 

Please send all entries to:
