Ethiopian Dwarf Mongoose


The Ethiopian Dwarf Mongoose (Helogale hirtula) is a mongoose found in eastern Africa, particularly Ethiopia, Kenya, and Somalia.
Ethiopian Dwarf Mongooses are found in savannahs, woodlands, brush country, and mountain scrub, from sea level to elevations of about 1,800 meters. Like Common Dwarf Mongooses, Ethiopian Dwarf Mongooses like areas with rocky outcrops or termite mounds and often den in such areas. Ethiopian Dwarf Mongooses can also live in agricultural areas near people and occur in villages where they can be quite tame.
