Mongooses are active, bold predators. They live in burrows and feed on small mammals, birds, reptiles, eggs, and occasionally fruit. Most species are diurnal and land-dwelling. Some mongooses live alone or in pairs, and others, such as the banded and dwarf mongooses, live in large groups. Litters contain two to four young.

A number of mongooses will attack and kill poisonous snakes. They depend on speed and agility, darting at the head of the snake and cracking the skull with a powerful bite. They are not immune to venom, as popularly believed, nor do they seek and eat an herbal remedy if bitten.

One species of mongoose was introduced into Hawaii and the West Indies to control rodents and snakes. The results were disastrous, because the mongooses severely damaged the populations of the native fauna. Because of the potential destructiveness of the animals, importation of mongooses of any species into the United States is strictly regulated.
