HTNI #29

Timon , a character in the Lion King is a small mammal that belongs to the mongoose family. The name for this species is a loanword from Afrikaans and is a dutch word meaning “Lake Cat”, but these animals neither belong to the cat family nor are they attracted to lakes. It is therefore considered that it might be an adaptation of a derivative of the Sanskrit word meaning monkey. What is the name of this creature?
