Mongoose Young

Just as dusk was falling we had visitors across our patio: Mongoose with her pair of offspring.

Meet the twinsWe were first alerted to their presence by the insistent alarm calls of the roosting birds.  They were just passing through and Mum shepherded them into the nearby vegetation and the birds settled back down again.

    • They can become quite tame, although not sure about becoming truly domesticated. Yes, i have heard of them being kept as pets, but they’re definitely not the cuddly type. Good to have them around to keep rats and snakes down.

  1. What a moment you’ve captured, Liz! Perfect timing. A bit here and there and the photograph would’ve lost its impact.
    A sweet family portrait. I love the expression on their faces:)
