Driving on the main track of Lake Manyara National Park, a mongoose darts across the road. Luckily he paused just long enough to look both ways before crossing, giving me a chance to get his picture before he once again disappeared into the bush.
I’m not 100% on my small mammals, but I believe he is a Marsh Mongoose (Atilax paludinosus) also referred to as a Water Mongoose. If anyone knows for sure what his species of mongoose is, please let me know. I thank you in advance!
