Description

The Common Kusimanse (Crossarchus obscurus) is a diurnal dwarf mongoose. They differ from other mongooses in their preferred habitats which are forested areas near water, rather than open grasslands. As a social animal the Common Kusimanse lives in a small family group of 10-20 or more animals that follows a strict hierarchical structure. Physically, they have a weasel-shaped body with dark or red-brown, thick fur that has a wiry texture down the back, and a fine and soft texture on the underside. They have a long snout, short legs with long claws, dark colored eyes, and a short and stiff tail that tapers to a point.
