Banded Mongoose, Botswana

Photographed in the Okavango Delta, Botswana, this banded mongoose was one of a fairly large colony which we observed just before sunset. They seem to be active and social animals and whilst we watched them, they spent much of their time foraging through leaf litter looking for insects and grubs.
