Dwarf Mongoose “beds”

Dwarf Mongooses live in Africa. Wikipedia says they sleep at night in…

  • “disused” termite mounds
  • rock piles
  • hollow trees

… along with other such cubby hole hideouts in their part of Africa.

See if you can find at least 3 pictures of actual places a dwarf mongoose might sleep tonight.
Can you verify the location — was the picture taken within the mongoose’s range?
What threats and conveniences would go along with each place you pictured? Does one place seem to “outrank” the others due to the possibility of food, water, or the best possible shelter?
