When I searched the Internet for photos of mongooses, I really liked this plump and fluffy one. As cute as a cat! And I quickly drew a step by step lesson. And only then I began to look for its name. Helogale – a dwarf mongoose. This cute animal has a body length of 15-20 centimeters. A little more than a mouse!

So, let’s start drawing this tiny mongoose from the diagram.

This animal is definitely a mongoose, but I could not find exactly what species it belongs to. I hope this will not prevent it from hunting snakes, and will not turn us off drawing it in stages.
