The Indian Grey Mongoose or Common Grey Mongoose, Herpestes edwardsii (Herpestidae), is a small, slender carnivore, with a long, bushy, tapering tail, short legs, and sharp, non-retractable claws.
This mongoose is found from the central and eastern Arabian Peninsula, through Iran, Afghanistan and Pakistan, to India, Nepal and Sri Lanka. It has also been introduced to Japan and Peninsular Malaysia [source].
Although native to Asia, this mosquito is an invasive species that can already be found in different countries of America, Europe and Africa. Like its relative, Aedes aegypti, can transmit pathogens and viruses, such as the Yellow fever virus, Dengue fever and Chikungunya fever.
