Golden Slender Mongoose…

Bob Berghaier just wrote me with this picture and said

“The pic was taken in the western Okavango Delta on island that is a private concession area for Wilderness Safari’s Tubu Tree Lodge. I am sure that this is a slender mongoose, however this animal appears to be a golden color. I have my own pictures of dark brown colored slender mongoose taken in other areas of Botswana.
I am wondering if any of other Mammal have seen or heard this color type?”

    Looks really similar to the images I took of the slender mongoose colony I came across near Chobe… Take a look at my link below

    I think I have a photo of an almost yellow one from NW Okavango, but I’ll only get to check a month from now.
