Mongolian Flora and Fauna

We were in Mongolia from the 19th September to the 30th October 2003

This friendly weevil spent a night in our tent, note the hooked feet for climbing:

Interesting ladybirds were still around:

This mouse kept us awake trying to get into our food panniers. Then he made the mistake of looking inside a plastic bag and we captured him for the night. He scurried happily off in the morning:

In the Gobi we saw these red plants. They can obviously survive with very little water:

Spotted this lovely lizard near Sainshand in the Gobi desert:

Camels were a common sight between Sainshand and Zamyn Uud:
