SMALL ANIMALS OF AFRICA
Survive in an environment dominated by giants
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.
