MOESM24 of BMC ecology image competition 2017: the winning images

Additional file 24. You better get the weight right! “I assisted with research on the behaviour of elephant shrews (Elephantulus myurus) trying to determine how personalities might affect their ecology. These animals have vastly different personalities, ranging from extremely aggressive to timid and some individuals are quite bold, as is the case for this individual, who is curiously exploring the research station, making sure its body measurements have been correctly recorded.” Attribution: Dewald Kleynhans (University of Pretoria, South Africa).
