The Dassie A South African Survival Specialist

A film by Marlen Hundertmark
Documentary (52Min.), WDR, 2016

They are cute, small and indeed quite special. Their bigger relatives, the elephants, are well known throughout the world, but these little animals with their special charm haven’t received the same publicity yet. In Africa everybody knows them, in Europe nearly nobody. Wrongly, because these little furballs are not only very charming, they also have a very distinct social life. The film tells us a story about Rocky, a young dassie and his family. We come along with them, through the small and big dramas of their life.
