I am glad that you want to improve your animal drawing skills, and now I will show you how to draw a mongoose step by step. This is a predatory animal that lives in tropical countries.
The mongoose has a small head with a pointed muzzle, an elongated body and short limbs. The ears are small and rounded. The tail is quite long and fluffy. All these features you have to depict in your drawing.
