Ichneumia Skull Replica measures 3.9 inches. Ichneumia skull is museum quality polyurethane cast. Genus of White-Tailed Mongoose

Ichneumia or White Tailed Mongoose have long faces and bodies, small, rounded ears, short legs, and long, tapering tails.

Knowledge of the reproduction of the white tailed mongoose is incomplete. Litters are seen most frequently from February to May, and no young appear at all during the dry season from August to November, which suggests that they only breed once a year.

The young are fully weaned at nine months of age, and around this time, the young disperse. It is speculated that sexual maturity is reached before two years of age, and that the gestation period is around 60 days.

Ichneumia or White Tailed Mongoose are very vocal, and make an unusual barking sound that is associated with sexual behavior.

If frightened, they will secrete a noxious substance from their anal glands. They do not stand on their hind feet for any length of time like other mongooses.
