Mongoose pups born 
at Brookfield Zoo

BROOKFIELD – Two litters of dwarf mongoose pups have been born since September at Brookfield Zoo in suburban Chicago.

The litters were born Sept. 12 and Nov. 24 and totaled seven pups. The mother is 3-year-old Tavi.

The father is 13-year-old Gimbi. The two were paired based on recommendations from the Association of Zoos and Aquariums’ Dwarf Mongoose Species Survival Plan.

The Brookfield Zoo has had dwarf mongooses for almost 20 years.

Mongoose pups are born with their eyes closed and don’t open them until they are about 2 weeks old.
