  • Abstract:  Den characteristics were quantified for dwarf mongoose Helogale parvula and banded mongoose Mungos mungo dens to determine reasons of den selection. Dwarf mongooses preferred multi-holed termitaria located in thickets, close to cover, while the den preferences of banded mongooses were similar. Both species primarily used dens for single-night stays. Fifty-six per cent of dwarf mongoose dens and 35% of banded mongoose dens were used more than once. Two of 36 dens were inhabited by both species, but not simultaneously. The importance of habitat parameters influencing den selection are discussed, and compared for the two viverrid species.
