YOU PUT THAT CAN OPENER?NARRATOR: THESE FOUR-POUND
LITTLE PREDATORS MAKE VERY
NICE SNACKS THEMSELVES.SO, THEY HAVE TO
BE CAREFUL WHEN CRUISING
THE AFRICAN SAVANNA.MONGOOSE: SINGLE
FILE, SINGLE FILE, OH.NARRATOR: LIVING IN LARGE
GROUPS DOES HELP PROTECT THEM,

SQUABBLES CAN BREAK OUT.

DUKE IT OUT AT DAWN. MONGOOSE: OH,
BUT I’M HUNGRY. MONGOOSE: OKAY, WELL,

A GOOD TICKING OFF,

SOCKS WITH LEGS,
