Interesting Facts about Mongoose

Mongooses are renowned for their immunity to snake venom, allowing them to prey on venomous snakes without succumbing to their bites. This resistance, however, varies among species and is not absolute but rather a result of evolved biological defenses. In addition to their hunting prowess, mongooses are highly social animals, with some species living in large groups and communicating through a complex system of vocalizations. Their burrowing habits contribute significantly to the aeration and mixing of soil, benefiting the ecosystem.
