On a recent Safari from Pretoria, we came across these guys enjoying the morning sun.

Oh, and there are babies too!

They belong to the mongoose family and are carnivores, love insects but small lizards, scorpions, eggs etc. makes a good meal too. They’re immune to some venom such as that from a scorpion. They are burrowing animals, living underground in a network of tunnels with multiple entrances.

Can watch these guys for hours……
