Tough little buggers...lock up your cats!
Tom Wilson: I think a cat might put up a pretty hard fight! They seem to feed mainly on insects and small snakes, ground nesting birds, and the like.

I have no experience of these critters Tom, I don't think it looks too friendly
Tom Wilson: I think they'd probably run from anything larger than themselves smile
It doesn't look much fun Tom.
Tom Wilson: Not something I'd want as a pet!
Good close-up Tom, these are the guys who take on snakes aren't they.
Tom Wilson: Thanks, Brian - yes - small snakes, insects, ground nesting birds, etc.
Good detail on the hairs.
Tom Wilson: It seems to have very strong hair!
from this angle, it does look rather imposing, Tom.
Tom Wilson: I believe it is quite small, actually smile
Compare the Mongoose doesn't work the same
Tom Wilson: Not quite... smile
Oddly cute... smile
