Winning Stripes

Duration: 01:56

The neighbouring family mongoose rivals, the Stripe Family are back on the warpath. They still want more of the Banded Brothers' territory and they are prepared to fight for it. At first, the pups seem eager to play their part in the fray, but these fights can be a dangerous place for youngsters. Telling each other apart by sight and scent the more experienced adults and gung ho juveniles square up for the fight. As the fighting intensifies some of the adults lead the pups away from danger, but this leaves them outnumbered and only able to hold their ground against the Stripes for long enough to give the pups some escape time. Yet again, the Stripes win and take a little more territory from the Banded Brothers.
