Jackson’s mongoose in Tanzania

Wildlife Extra News – Africa’s rarest carnivore discovered in Tanzania.

Africa’s least-known and probably rarest carnivore, Jackson’s mongoose, known only from a few observations and museum specimens, has been found in Tanzania’s Udzungwa Mountains. The mongoose was captured during a camera-trap study in the mountains of Southern Tanzania conducted by The Bronx Zoo-based Wildlife Conservation Society (WCS). The findings mark a range extension for the bushy-tailed carnivore, previously known to exist only in Kenya.
