Cheryl Chanderpal went on a self-guided safari in South Africa’s Kruger National Park one day, and she was looking forward to seeing who she would see.
“I am a South African, and a self-driven safari is one of my favorite pastimes,” Chanderpal told The Dodo. “We’d just passed a hyena and come onto a calm road – they are the nicest since you never know what lurks in the bushes nearby.”
Chanderpal was looking forward to seeing who they would meet next when she noticed a weird tiny animal dart across the road in the distance. She instinctively grabbed her camera to take some photographs, and when she saw the results, she couldn’t stop giggling.
The weird animal she had captured in the shot didn’t like anything she’d ever seen before. She decided to share the photo on social media to seek other people’s feedback, and the responses were fantastic.
Chanderpal explained, “I shared the photo for fun and to see who could identify out what animal it was.” “Mini brontosaurus, little giraffe, tiny dinosaur, and so forth were among the suggestions. It had been amanzing.
Once the car got a little closer, Chanderpal was able to figure out exactly what kind of animal the little thing actually was.
Chanderpal explained, “In actuality, that was a common dwarf mongoose.” “They’re cute, fast-moving, and a lot of fun to photograph. He climbed a tree and waited there to ensure that the road was free for his family to pass. Animals are the most wonderful.”
Chanderpal was overjoyed to have a closer look at the tiny boy and was able to take some much better photographs of him. Even so, she’ll always remember the first photo of the small giraffe. Gold in terms of photography.
