A highlight of our recent trip to the Namib Desert was our encounter with substantial numbers of highly approachable Jameson’s Red Rock Rabbits (Pronolagus randensis). At the time when Chris was working in the central Namib Desert numbers of this rock dwelling lagomorph were very low and they were found only on a few isolated rock outcrops. On this trip we encountered large numbers of their distinctive dung middens, as well as abundant sightings at two of the locations where we camped. What was particularly remarkable was the fact that at one site in the evening we had no less than four of these rabbits in our camp at one time. Conditions were particularly dry, even for the Namib, so perhaps they were hoping for handouts (we did not oblige but other tourists possibly did). These rabbits are normally very timid, seldom seen and little is known about them. They occur in two disjunct populations, one in the north-east of South Africa and adjacent countries, and in western Namibia, including in the Namib and Pro-Namib. We have photographed this species in the Soutpansberg range, Limpopo Province, where they have noticeably shorter ears than those in the Namib. We have not had the opportunity to compare museum specimens from the two regions to confirm this difference. Given the isolation of the Namibian population future DNA work may show this rabbit to be a distinct species.
