    Default A Toad for Breakfast--Striped necked mongoose

    This quick moving denizen was moving like lightning towards us when It suddenly turned tail and made a beeline back towards the forest line.I saw the reason dangling out of its mouth.Nikon7100+150-600mm ISO800 F/8 1/500s Bandipur early morning Nov 2015.

    Wow, this is a nice record. Could you share a close crop of the prey? Toads produce toxins that make them inedible to most animals. If this mongoose actually caught a toad, it would be a valuable record.

    Nice documentation. Frogs and snakes are, inter alia, form 'diet' of Common Mongoose. The same may be true for Striped Mongoose. Thanks for sharing. SaktiWild

    From the webbing visible in the feet, I'd say it's a bullfrog. Not completely sure though.

    Rare moment captured well. A wee bit of sharpening and opening up the shadows a little, will help control the burn effect.
    Thanks for sharing

    I have seen The stripe necked mongoose feed on frogs and crabs in nagarhole in the salt licks. It was a foggy morning and I had shot many shots but couldn't get the prey as clearly as this. Thanks for sharing.

    Cheers,
