Cute Animals Oct 2014

At the Turgwe Hippo Trust a family of Chacma baboons of over fifty use our home as their habitat and so we get to watch completely natural behaviour. Some of it is so cute as you will see in this small video clip. Squiggle the slender mongoose came into our lives in March 2013 and she is still living in the house with us and is not showing any signs of wanting to leave. She has enriched our lives and our old pussycats one hundred percent and as you can see she has grown into a beautiful animal. Baby hippos and their antics take a lot to beat and here you can watch the youngest baby Darrow and his friends and family.

    Hi Karen–just a note to say thank you for always allowing us into your life and experiences! The video is ultra cute and I enjoyed reading your book immensely. While reading it, I found that the amazing struggles and difficulties you and Jean encountered were beyond belief and more so that you continued to stay there! I commend you both on all your efforts and loyalties. Thank you for providing great viewing and reading materials and don’t stop! Nora Davidoff

    These are very cute animals indeed, Karen. It’s too hard to say which is the cutest, so I won’t. They all are cute in their own way.
    Thank you for making such an effort to make the video. I’ll bring it to the attention of my friends tomorrow, so hopefully you’ll have a few more hits this weekend.
    Cheers, Lona

    • thank you Lona it means a lot to me if people make comments and hopefully enjoy the videos and any blogs Miss Squiggle just caught a blue tailed lizard she is certainly a predator but we love her to bits. Thanks so much for your comment Love Karen and the hippos
