One tends to think of porcupine roaming in the wild but they are quite common here in the neighbourhood, though they not always welcome. For the keen gardener who prizes the display of flowering bulbs they can become pests. Being herbivores they are partial to a diet of juicy geophytes and digging up corms / bulbs is a nightly escapade.
Would you rate this from the baboon’s point of view, or from the motorist’s?
Seed dispersal – isn’t it a fascinating topic! Here this strezilia tree is advertising it’s pods through it’s rich orange tone. Such dynamic processes will kick in to get the seeds moving, wind, gravity, birds, mice, humans ( me in this case!) have designs on depositing the seeds in different locations. It will be interesting to track how many take root in the future.
