Mongoose

Mongoose

This particular Mongoose is a resident of the Denver Zoo. Mongooses are typically found in Africa and the southern parts of Asia. According to National Geographic, the Hawaiian and West Indie Islands’ plantation farmers intentionally introduced the mongoose to eliminate rodents that would eat their money crops, but now these small predators have endangered many native species of birds as they do eat all kinds of eggs.
