During a bird watching excursion to the Amani Nature Reserve (East Usambara Mountains), Tanzania, in July 2003, five ornithologists encountered a mongoose of the Bdeogale-group. The mongoose was most likely the Sokoke dog mongoose Bdeogale omnivore Heller, 1913, a species first observed from this area in 1939, but not reported since then.
