Meet our adventurous bokiboky in Kirindy Forest
The bokiboky is only found in the dry deciduous forests of Western Madagascar. As a social species, they usually live in family groups of up to eight individuals, led by a dominant female. They spend their time both on the ground and in the trees, sleeping in underground burrows or holes in trees. Although it is known as a mongoose, the bokiboky is actually in a separate scientific family called ‘Eupleridae’, a family of small carnivores only found in Madagascar.
