Mongooses have light grey fur and grow to a length of about two feet. They are very common animals in some parts of the world, and are valued as snake-killers. They are related to weasels, stoats and ferrets.
Mongooses are especially valued as house pets and a mongoose that is trained to remain in the vicinity of a dwelling (and protect against snakes, especially cobras) will fetch 300-400 Silver Pennies. They are relatively easy to train for this task.
Mongooses may "dance" in melee, a defensive ability that manifests as a second action. They are not tool or magic users.
