The Little Five

The fine folks on our ship held a contest the other night to see which guests could name the Little Five -- the more diminutive African creatures that share names with the Big 5. We were one of two cabins to get all five.

The prize was a bottle of wine. Since we aren't oenophiles, Esther sweetly asked whether they could substitute a stuffed animal. And look who showed up in our cabin.

The Little Five

Elephant Shrew
Ant Lion
Leopard Tortoise
Buffalo Weaver (which we saw in Namibia)
Rhinoceros Beetle (which we also saw in Namibia)
