'Tucker time - African Ground squirrel' (2010)
Subject: African Ground squirrel pauses to nibble on a seed.
Medium: Coloured charcoal engraving, and drawing on board
Description: African Ground Squirrels live in burrowing colonies and often share their home with Yellow Mongooses. Although I feared a mongoose would harm the little squirrels I witnessed a squabble where the squirrel gave the thieving mongoose a sound thrashing and a strident telling off!
