Oh, our curious little mascot! You’ll catch these quick little rodents scurrying across the road, or even taunting an iguana. Mongoose were brought to the island to eradicate the rat problem. Well, problem was, rats were nocturnal (they like the night time) and mongoose are diurnal (they like the day time); which means that little plan didn’t work out so well. What did end up happening was that the mongoose wiped out the snake population on St. Croix; which ironically was their original purpose in places like India, where they would hunt and kill King Cobras!
