Title: Herpestes ichneumon
Description: Has mainly an African distribution, being present from the coast of the Mediterranean Sea to the Cape Region in South Africa.
Present at Iberian peninsula, actually in southern Portugal and south-west Spain. The status of the population is unknown. The reduction of large predators such as Iberian lynx  (Linx pardinus) and some birds of prey could account for the recent expansion of the mongoose.
