Mongolympics

Having spent February showcasing the diversity of mongooses in the world I felt compelled to have a round-up post, that would evaluate the different mongoose species and compare them to each other. Hence: mongolympics. To be honest it’s more like an awards ceremony than a competitive event, so maybe Maftas?

(if mongooses aren’t your thing, this post may not be relevant to your interests. that may be many people, but all of them are not the owners of this blog)

Anyway, the categories are:

  1. biggest mongoose
  2. smallest mongoose
  3. best-organised mongoose
  4. best-looking mongoose
  5. rarest mongoose
  6. commonest mongoose
  7. most agile mongoose
  8. most badass mongoose
  9. best mongoose
