Billy the Banded Mongoose
Billy the Banded Mongoose is the story of what happens on a typical day for the mongooses in Mweya. Through reading the book you can find out what life as a mongoose is like, how looking after pups is hungry work and how the mongooses must work together to fight their nasty neighbours. The book also includes questions about the behaviour of Billy and his banded buddies – the kind of questions that are asked by the banded mongoose research team. By thinking about or discussing the answers to these questions you can become a mongoose scientist yourself and gain an insight into the world of behavioural ecology.
