Location: Heart, mind and soul on an early morning drive close to Satara, unfortunately the body is in CPT!
Saw this little fellow on the S126 last week. Not as brilliant a shot as some of teh others on this link, but a dwarf mongoose nevertheless.

Hello! Different student than the pangolin girl, same project. I am working on an online field guide of East African Mammals. I have searched the internet for an answer to my question, but I just can't seem to find it.

Can any of you tell me the etymology of the dwarf moongoose's scientific name, Helogale Paruvula? Thank you!

Wow, you kids make me sweat for this, hey. :lol:
All I could find so far was:

parvula - from the Latin, parvus, meaning little.

And ~gale is Greek, meaning weasel. Usually the "helo" prefix refers to marsh/meadow (helos, also Greek), but somehow that just doesn't seem to fit in this case. :?

This was my best shot.

They are just too adorable to watch and can be very entertaining.

Beautiful pics everyone!
Its well worth it to switch off the engine and wait for a family of Dwarf mongooses to be relaxed enough and come out and play!Lovely creatures
