It might be wondered why such a poor specimen of photo-hood, taken through glass and not very clear, should have been chosen for the challenge. Well, this first view through sliding doors of a group of Banded Mongooses on our front lawn after a long period when there was no sign of them was certainly unexpected – but the real reason is that I hoped to tempt any new visitors also to take a look at my previous post where I have told the tale of one of these little creatures behaving in the most unexpected way one could possibly imagine!
Incidentally, the total group now occupying the ‘basement’ of our home is the largest we have ever seen here. There must be some 30 – 50 of them. It is good news, actually. We were becoming somewhat overpopulated with snakes, scorpions, centipedes, millipedes and the like, and these keen little hunters will soon correct that situation.
