I'm new to this site. I was unsure what this animal was at first but I'm thinking it's a Ruddy Mongoose. The pictures provided of a mongoose are ones with stripes, but this one doesn't have them. Any other ideas?
Hi mgmcb, and welcome to Snapshot Serengeti!
Mongoose is correct and you have found great image of White-tailed Mongoose.
In Id-list the 2nd example image is of this species.
Here nice extra info about all mongoose species in the Serengeti https://talk.snapshotserengeti.org/?_ga=1.69138641.1394240084.1478376452#/boards/BSG000000b/discussions/DSG0001jnc 😃
