Why together?

As Wikipedia say:

“The mongoose has a similar appearance to the weasel, despite not being closely related. Their long sleek bodies and short fur fit them for similar ecological niches. They live in similar climates and both burrow underground. Like weasels, mongooses have short legs and tails.”

And because… well…. if these otters are not trying to be meerkats, I have no idea what they are up to!
