Alexander's kusimanse (Crossarchus alexandri) is a genus of mongoose found in the countries of Central Africa, Central African Republic, Uganda, the Republic of Congo and the Democratic Republic of Congo. They have an average body length of 30 to 45 centimeters (12 to 18 inches) and weigh between 0.45 and 1.4 kilograms (1 to 3 pounds). Their average tail length is between 15 and 25 centimeteres (6 to 10 inches). It is known to share range with the Angolan kusimanse (Crossarchus ansorgei). They feed on grubs, small rodents, small reptiles, crabs, and some fruits. Kusimanse can produce 2 to 3 litters (2 to 4 young per litter) of young each year after a gestation period of 8 weeks. They will wean at 3 weeks old and reach sexual maturity at 9 months old.
