Actor of secretive theatre.

A feisty little carnivore, a survivor in the proximity of humans, this is the most adaptable among the six mongoose species of India. As Ricky Ticky Tavi, in Kipling’s Jungle book, it is popular all over the world and desired to be seen in the wild. It is amazing how a predator like him survives in human habitations hunting their pet animals and birds. People’s careless ways provide ample food and shelter for them as well. When you wander about an Indian village you may hear an unusual alarm sound by the domestic chickens among the bushes, predicting the presence of this elusive predator. Perhaps you may come across people enjoying the fights between a tamed mongoose and a de-fanged cobra. But, it will be more entertaining to watch their activities in the wild, with the very secretive movements, occasional vigilance by raising head to look around, hunting small mammals, birds, and reptiles. There, this excellent survivor, the Grey mongoose is brave enough to steal food from the carcass of a tiger kill or a leopard kill.
