This tiny Slender mongoose (Galerella sanguinea) is currently being weaned from a milk formula and learning how to forage for food. Found on her own on the school grounds of PLG Mellow Oaks Academy, Little Falls, she was left for a significant period of time in the hope that her mother would find her. Unable to reunite her with her family, she was brought in for us to care for her, and to prepare her for her ultimate release.
Thanks to Penny Hardie for her assistance with this little mongoose.
