Sighting 1

  • Date: October 30, 2017
  • Time: Early morning, approx. 06h10
  • Region where seen: Dargle
  • Number of samangos: Approximately 17 samangos, adults and juveniles, including one female with tiny baby, and one large adult male.  
  • Habitat: foraging in a large fig tree (probably a Forest Fig) in a paddock on the edge of indigenous forest
  • Observations: Sighted about 17 samangos leaving a large indigenous fig tree where they had been feeding. They moved to the forest fringe, from where one large male observed me from a tall yellowwood tree, for over an hour. The troop remained in the area but kept mostly hidden. Also saw two in a small tree some distance away enjoying the early morning sun. Just after 07h15 they all disappeared into the forest.
  • Reported by: Dave (surname withheld on request)
