The African Civet is the only remaining member in its genetic group and is considered to be the largest Civet. The African Civet is well known for the musk that it secretes to mark its territory. This musk has been used to manufacture perfumes for centuries.

Despite its cat-like appearance and behaviors, the African Civet is not a feline. In fact it is closely related to other small carnivores including weasels and mongooses.

This nocturnal animal is primarily a tree-dwelling creature, but it will leave the trees to get food. It predominantly uses its sharp teeth and mouth to gather food instead of using its paws.

Small animals such as rodents, lizards, snakes and frogs make up the majority of the African Civet's diet. They also eat insects, berries and fallen fruits found on the forest floor. It's safe to say they support the five second rule.  

Like its celebrity look-a-like, the African Civet’s striking black and white markings make it one of the easiest species to identify.
