Weekly Animal Pic - Russian Desman
My thanks to the Beeb for providing the above photo. (Can't really hide that!)
The lates National Geographic has an ad for Canon and the photo on the ad is a great one of the Desman. I had never heard of it before but the photo was enough for me!
The Russian Desman is an endangered member of the mole family and can be found small floodplain lakes of the Volga, Don and Ural river basins in Russia, Ukraine and Kazakhstan. These rivers are dying making life difficult for our little friends.
I guess that's the plight of many of Earth's creatures...
San Nakji for President!
