The mighty Mongoose vs. TB

Believe it or not, the brave little mongoose, famous for its battles with snakes, has a peculiar resistance to bovine tuberculosis (TB). While cattle and other mammals can succumb to the disease, mongooses can carry the TB bacteria without showing any symptoms! Scientists are still researching the exact reason behind this resistance, but it’s thought their unique immune system might play a role.

So, next time you see a mongoose fearlessly facing a foe, remember, they might also be packing a secret weapon against TB! (This fact is particularly interesting because the article you previously requested was about TB in pets, but it focused on cats and dogs, not farm animals where TB is more common).
