Ring-tailed Mongoose (Galidia elegans)

…is not a true mongoose but a euplerid native solely to Madagascar. Like most carnivores the ring-tailed mongoose is a hunter and feeds on small mammals, fish, eggs and small invertebrates. They are also accomplished climbers and can navigate their humid forest habitat with ease. Ring-tailed Mongooses are also quite playful and are very active during the day.
