Caption: Xeric four-striped grass mouse, or xeric four-striped grass rat, (Rhabdomys pumilio) tail-wagging during a territorial dispute whilst foraging in the early morning sunshine in the middle of winter. This behaviour usually indicates that the mouse is either anxious, nervous or agitated. This rodent is found throughout the southern half of Africa up to an altitude of around 2,300 metres. Filmed in the Auob riverbed of the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park in Southern Africa.
