On December 15, a mongoose was seen to cross the street at the Gusuku intersection in Nago. When the light turned green, the mongoose slowly started to cross while looking both ways for oncoming cars. The animal succeeded in crossing the road.

Some elementary school students waiting for the traffic light to change were surprised and impressed to see the mongoose carefully cross the street.
Masamichi Fujine of the Ark Okimaru, who rears animals at the Okinawa Zoo & Museum, said, “The mongoose is a very cautious animal, but it is adaptable and will make its den near where it finds food and hiding places.”
