As described in Keeping, caring and feeding of mongooses
is quite tricky
and sometimes difficult as the needs of the animals are hard to meet.
But what if you refrain from keeping mongooses but your wish to have these little guys around is still alive...?
Why not create a wooden sculpture of a mongoose? Enrich your home with a guarding banded mongoose, 'protecting' you and your family against the odditys of life?
Probably you like the idea and have the skills to create a nice wooden mongoose or might ask a friend - give it a try!
This sculpture is based on three photographs of a banded mongoose at the Berlin Zoo standing on it's hind-legs.
The result is impressive: Both, body shape and proportions are extremely well made and match perfectly a banded mongoose! Even the fur-patterns of banded mongooses has been carefully analyzed and reproduced. The eyes perfectly reflect the vigilance and awareness of mongooses for enemies - this is very well captured. Even the clawed paws were prepared lovingly!
Now the cute little wooden sculpture adorns the livingroom!
