ABSTRACT
Civet, a small, catlike mammal related to the mongoose. There are several species, most of which inhabit forests or savannas in Africa and Southeast Asia. The civet has a long, slender body, a pointed snout, short legs, and a long tail. The thick, coarse fur is marked with spots, stripes, and bands. The civet lives in trees and is active at night, when it feeds on insects, fruit, carrion, reptiles, and small birds and rodents. The female bears one to three litters of two or three young per year.
