The name of this carnivore is somewhat misleading, as it is related to the mongoose family. It preys on birds and small mammals, as well as opportunistically on insects, amphibians, reptiles and fruit. It is nocturnal and very shy, thus very rarely seen. When startled, it gives off a distinct smell from glands near its anus.
