    Acording to zootierliste, Sofia has the only White-tailed Mongoose in Europe.

    I remember when Heidleberg Zoo housed white-tailed mongoose in with their gorillas.

    I emailed the zoo to ask, but they haven't answer yet. Keepers on spot could not answer. .

    Although I've visited Heidleberg Zoo on a number of occasions, only one of my visits coincided with the mixed gorilla / mongoose exhibit and I'm not sure of the outcome.

    Hopefully somebody else will be able to answer that.

    The mix went well, the mongoose died of old age if I remember well...

    Correct. And @Tim May - it's Heidelberg, not Heidleberg. ;)
