The other day, while doing the dishes, I saw N'djema pouncing and trouncing on one of the rugs. She usually plays like that with cockroaches, but that is more in the evening. I ignored her for a little bit and then had the sinking feeling that she might be tormenting a gecko. But no, it wasn't a gecko; it was a Madagascan Pygmy Shrew!
The poor fellow was pretty traumatized, so we were able to get a few photos before setting him free behind the house. Because he's such a small critter (4.5cm excluding the tail), you get 3! pics. :P
