Liberian Mongoose

The Liberian Mongoose (Liberiictis kuhni) is a mongoose that was discovered in Liberia in 1958. Little was known about the animal except what local natives related. The animals were said to live in small groups and fed on earthworms and various other insects. The exact distribution is unknown, but may extend from Sierra Leone to the Ivory Coast. Confirmed sightings are restricted to forests in Liberia and the Tai National Park in the Ivory Coast. A live specimen was exhibited at the Toronto Zoo, but civil war in Liberia has prevented further study. Due to its limited range and that it is heavily hunted, the Liberian mongoose is considered endangered.
