After lunch our guide said we had two options: stay the afternoon in the swimming pool or take the truck and try to see more animals in another direction. Me and other few ones hit the road for hours in the Etosha NP, we saw many savage animals but the smaller ones were more frequent. Here we have a kind of native squirrel. There were holes in the very dusty ground but nothing to eat kilometers around. Anyway the group was receptive to photos how you can see.
Depois do almoço o guia nos deu duas opções: passar a tarde na piscina ou sair de caminhão por umas estradas diferente dentro do parque nacional do Etosha. Eu e alguns poucos seguimos em frente, percorrendo uma estrada diferente. Não vimos muitos animais grandes, mas conhecemos vários animais pequenos como estes esquilos nativos que estavam num local completamente árido, fazendo tocas. Ao redor não havia nada para se comer durante quilômetros. No entanto, este grupo de bichos foi bem amistoso com as câmeras como vocês podem notar.

Nicely spotted this tiny creature that has perfect camouflage to its natural living area, Jorge.
A grandeur of a tail it has, shown this here in perfect clear details.

Hi Jorge, Nice capture of this small creature in a natural environment. Yes, it has a perfect camouflage to the its natural environment. Great details even though taken under strong sunlight and the composition does not give you much colour contrasts. Warm regards

An excellent snapshot in superb light & clarity. Brilliant details. You have captured the squirrel just second before jumping away.
These animals are incredible fast, I made experience few days back when one jump in to my house.....

I am assuming this is a squirrel. Very cute!
I have noticed that you use the word savage where we would use wild. I suppose Portuguese for wild sounds like savage in English. However, in English there is a slight difference between savage and wild. Any animal that is untamed is wild. But a savage animal is a ferocious, violent animal. So, squirrels are wild but not savage. Wolves are both wild and savage. Plants, for example, can be wild but the word savage is not appropriate to describe them. Just thought I would clear this up.
