mongoose

     

A mongoose (plural mongooses or, rarely, mongeese, though the wor has no etymological connection to the goose) is a member of the family Herpestidae, a family of small cat-like carnivores. The word mongoose is derived from the Marathi word mangus.

Trivia about mongoose

  • The Indian species of this cobra killer can be tamed when young
  • Kipling knew it's the agile carnivore seen here:
  • This cobra killer was introduced into the Western Hemisphere to kill rats but has done more harm to birds
  • Rikki-Tikki-Tavi, for example(8)
  • The ichneumon, one of these cobra killers, was worshipped by the ancient Egyptians
  • This serpent devourer was introduced into Jamaica to kill rats--didn't work; the rats simply climbed into trees
