Respected members,
Attaching pictures of a Coconut tree and a Mongoose . This mongoose climbs the tree drops down tender coconuts and eats them. It also eats mangoes and yes biscuits too if you offer. extremely active and alert sweet animal. Its body is so supple that easily slides away through the fence. It walks through cable wires for long distances from one building to another exactly at dusk time without ever falling down.

Regards

Excellent photo of coconut tree and mongoose. Rather surprising how
it breaks the tender coconut.

Thank you Neilji and Maniji for the interest.
@Maniji the mongoose drops down very small tender coconuts which are not so hard and it can bite.
