Who had Errol’s Ear?

15 Jul

Questions, not a quiz.

Anyone know the story behind this photo – location, approximate date, name, the species of Errol’s companion, where one can find that shirt, etc. ????

    A numbat perhaps?

    Could be a banded mongoose, native to central and eastern Africa:

    My guess is that this picture might have been taken during the filming of Roots of Heaven – but who knows what other occasions Errol had for enjoying someone nibbling at his ear.

    A banded mongoose! I believe you’re right.

    Wow, Claudia! How in the world did you figure that out! You are one amazing researcher!

    Here’s a band of merry banded mongeese:

      Thanks Tim – you’re making me blush!

      I remembered seeing a tv documentation about mongeese (LOL) a couple of years ago and just googled some pictures to be sure. ;-)
