I’m in planning mode for my return trip to Tanzania to study African Giant Pouched Rats, Cricetomys ansorgei

This is what I spend a good portion of my time doing, live-trapping and capturing pouched rats, called panyabuuku, in the wild.


This is what I actually have in store for me – literally! A large pile of medium size Tomahawk traps to assemble and set up. Let the good times roll.

Aaah, sawa sawa!
Love, Daniella
