Abstract: Common Dwarf Mongoose Helogale parvula is usually portrayed in the published literature as a wholly ground-dwelling mongoose, poorly adapted to climbing trees. Records from three sites show that, in some habitats, Mongooses do make good use of trees, in-cluding for denning purposes, although it remains unclear why trees are used for denning when other preferred den sites such as termitaries are available.
