  1. I can immediately see that they are truly wild by how thin they are. Often on display in zoos, it's quite a large difference. Beautiful group photo. Posted 4 years ago
    1. Thank you very much. Indeed, a tough life out there ... reminds me of Ghandi who went on a hunger strike to proof a point. The price of freedom comes at a cost. Ha, ha. Posted 4 years ago

The banded mongoose is a mongoose commonly found in the central and eastern parts of Africa. It lives in savannas, open forests and grasslands and feeds primarily on beetles and millipedes. Mongooses use various types of dens for shelter including termite mounds. While most mongoose species live solitary lives, the banded mongoose live in colonies with a complex social structure.
