What kind of animal is Mongoose?

A mongoose is a small, carnivorous mammal that belongs to the family Herpestidae.

There are two subfamilies of mongooses: the Herpestinae, which includes 23 species native to southern Europe, Africa, and Asia; and the Mungotinae, which includes 11 species native to Africa.

Mongooses have long faces and bodies, short legs, and long tails.

They have nonretractile claws that they use for digging.

They also have a large anal scent gland that they use for marking their territory and signaling their reproductive status.

Mongooses are one of the few mammals that have a natural resistance to snake venom, thanks to a mutation in their nicotinic acetylcholine receptor.

What does the Mongoose look like?

The mongoose is a furry beast
That likes to hunt and likes to feast
On snakes and rats and eggs and fruit
It doesn't care if they're cute

The mongoose is a fearless fighter
It can attack a king cobra or a viper
With speed and skill it dodges bites
And cracks the skull with all its might

The mongoose is not just one kind
There are many species you can find
Some are striped and some are banded
Some are gray and some are tanned

The mongoose is a clever creature
It can adapt to many features
It can live in burrows or in trees
It can swim or climb with ease

The mongoose is a wonder of nature
But it can also be a danger
If you try to keep it as a pet
You might end up with much regret
