Range Description

Endemic to West Africa, occurring from Gambia and Senegal west and south through Guinea-Bissau, Guinea, Sierra Leone, Cte dIvoire, Ghana, Togo, and Nigeria (Van Rompaey and Sillero-Zubiri in press). A record from Cameroon (Jeannin 1936), presumably results from confusion with Banded Mongoose (Van Rompaey and Sillero-Zubiri in press). The Niger R. presumably forms the eastern limit.
