As March is proving to be a month of either visiting or hosting visitors, it is appropriate that I introduce you to three of the uninvited guests to our home.
‘Flatties’, as we call them, can be seen in almost every room and frighten no-one.
As I was about to brush my teeth the other night, I saw this tiny frog on the wall next to the basin.
It soon sidled across to the mirror.
Having negotiated that slippery surface, it clung to the wall on the other side whilst taking its bearings.
It settled happily on the burglar guard, from where it observed me completing my ablutions.
While puffadders are beautiful to look at outdoors, they are not welcome inside! Fortunately, this one was spotted making its way down our passage one evening. We were able to catch it and release it in the veld well away from the house.
