Of course. It's a mongoose not a meerkat. Both look pretty much the same. Except the eyes. Mongoose eyes are EVIL!

Anyway...

I don't think that a Meerkat can kill a snake like a mongoose

Yep, and I've never seen a mongoose sell car insurance either!

Yay! Get to use my zoological studies!

Meerkats can kill snakes but have a generally broader body than most mongoose species. Instead of fast reflexes, they'll generally band together and flag their tails to confuse and dazzle snakes before piling on top of it and shredding it to pieces.

Said species i modeled / scared everyone with above (Yellow Mongoose / "Cynictis Penicillata") are generally the same and called a "red meerkat" by some (and will sometimes sneak into meerkat colonies to steal food / shelter but are not generally social). Interestingly enough, both species are immune to a wide range of venom, but are still susceptible to necrosis at the wound point. Another fun fact about the Yellow Mongoose is that they are unaffected by the effects of rabies, so individuals can be rabid their entire lives.. which can be upwards of 20-25 years.

The "Snake killers" are Indian Grey Mongoose (Herpestes Edwardsii), which are known for their lightning-quick reflexes due to their smaller, sleeker body structure.



Overall, hows the model look?

Looks great. Scary and evil, but great

Does it move, too, or is it a static model?

They're actually quite docile, J- one of the least aggressive critters of the game.

It moves, but i'm having some difficulty rigging it. I think I remember you commenting on one of my BUHH videos on Youtube
