Known to many people from Rudyard Kipling's The Jungle Book, mongooses are small, catlike carnivores. There are more than 30 species of mongooses living in a variety of habitats in Asia, Africa, and southern Europe, as well as some Caribbean and Hawaiian islands, where they were introduced in the late 19th century to control rats and snakes and instead caused several bird species to go extinct.
