Mongoose on the run.... Most folk know the Meerkat so here is the difference between the two.
What is the difference between Mongoose and Meerkat?

Meerkat usually inhabit dry deserts, whereas mongooses can range in different climates and habitats.

Mongoose has a bushy tail but meerkat does not.

The coat colours of mongooses vary across different species, while it is a fawn with gray and tan, or sometimes brown with silver tint in meerkats.

Meerkat has an elongated face compared to mongoose.

Meerkat has binocular vision, but mongoose does not.

Meerkat can close their ears while digging, but mongoose cannot.

Mongoose is carnivores, but meerkat is usually insectivorous mammal.

Mongoose can attack snakes, but there are no such reports from the meerkat.

Mongoose is immune to neurotoxins of the snake venom, while meerkats are immune to strong venoms of the scorpions.

The Bushbuck is not large, nor small, it loves the forested area and is very shy. Photographed in the thick bush in the Lake St Lucia wildlife estuary, before taking flight not to be seen again.
