New: dwarf mongoose

New! Nowadays you can admire dwarf mongooses on the island next to the zebras. This species is new in Diergaarde Blijdorp. The four, three men and a woman, still like to hide. Fortunately, zookeeper Dirk managed to make this nice video.

Dwarf Mongoose are small predators and are found in much of Africa. They are social animals and real sun worshipers just like meerkats. While hunting, they often work closely with hornbills, which warn mongooses against birds of prey… The fox-mongoose that first lived in the enclosure will move to another zoo.
