Brookfield Zoo

About this Article

Two litters of dwarf mongoose pups were born since September at Brookfield Zoo. 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 nearly 20 years.
