|Black-footed mongoose range|
The black-footed mongoose (Bdeogale nigripes) is a species of mongoose found in central Africa. Unlike most similar species, the black-footed mongoose has only 4 toes on each limb rather than 5. The black-footed mongoose is closely related to Jackson's mongoose, which is of the same subgenus Galeriscus and are sometimes considered conspecific. The black-footed mongoose inhabits the tropical belt from east Nigeria to north-east Zaire and to north Angola.
