Probably the rarest mammal that I’ve photographed to date is the beautiful Ethiopian Wolf (Canis simensis). This wolf has a lovely reddish-coloured coat and distinctive white markings. It lives only in the highlands of Ethiopia, mostly above the tree-line where it exists on a diet of grassland rats. It’s estimated that there are only 500 adults in existence, more than half that total being in the Bale Mountains, where this photograph was taken.
