Banded mongoose (Mungos mungo) foraging. This species is commonly found in areas with termite mounds, which are used as a source of food and housing. Their diet includes insects (termites and larvae of beetles), centipedes, lizards, snakes, frogs and sometimes mice. Banded mongooses live in mixed-sex groups of 7 40 individuals (average around 20). Groups sleep together at night in underground dens, often abandoned termite mounds, and change dens frequently (every 2 3 days). Banded mongooses are strictly diurnal. This means they come out in the morning and spend the whole day feeding, foraging and resting. Filmed in Namutoni Camp, Etosha National Park, Namibia.
