Plate XXXI: "Distribution.- Southern Spain, Asia Minor, Palestine, and Africa north of the Sahara. None of the Mungooses (Mongooses) are arboreal; and they generally dwell in holes in the earth, among bushes, or in hedgerows, being seldom found in thick forest. Their diet includes the smaller Rodent Mammals, Bids and their eggs, as well as Snakes, Lizards, and Frogs. The Egyptian Mungoose, at least, devours large numbers of Crocodile's eggs, on which account it has always been held in high regard by the inhabitants of the Nile Delta."
