Aren’t these little mongooses just so cute? According to Wikipedia’s mongoose article, mongooses are carnivorous mammals. There are 33 species of mongoose and they range from 1 foot (0.30 m) to 4 feet (1.2 m) in length.
Have you ever seen such tiny little animals before? Okay, I know, we’ve posted hummingbirds, shrews and the like, but still you must admit that these dwarf mongoose pups are super small and adorable! Dwarf mongeese grow to a length between 18cm-28cm and are (according to Wikipedia), Africa’s smallest carnivores! These dwarf mongeese (mongooses) are all from the Bronx zoo.
Don't these guys remind you of puppies?
Here’s a little video of dwarf mongeese at the Bronx Zoo in New York:
Sorry that I haven’t posted in a little while; I have been incredibly busy lately. Here I am though with an absolutely adorable little pygmy mongoose that I am sure will make anybody cheer up, just at the sheer sight of him. This guy looks like he’s in the middle of some serious business…whether he’s digging, looking for a place to hide while playing hide-and-seek, or just having fun, this was a great scene to catch on camera. What a cutie!
