Caption: Ice rat (Otomys sloggeti) sitting in the sun outside its burrow. This rodent lives in small groups numbering around four individuals. Its numbers are regulated by the very cold winter conditions prevalent in the mountainous regions of southern Africa where it lives. It is, however, protected from extreme conditions by its thick fur coat. Photographed in the Sani Pass, Drakensberg Mountains, South Africa.
