Default Sloggett's Ice Rat, Myotomys sloggetti

Not sure who name this or who Sloggett was, but it has to be one of my favourite names for a rat. It's also quite cute for a rat. Photographed at the border of South Africa and Lesotho at the top of the Sani Pass.

Great shot.
According to Wikipedia it is named after Col. Arthur Sloggett who served in South Africa and collected the first specimen at Deelfontein in 1902
