  Three-striped Palm Civet

 

PREVIOUS CIVET NEXT CIVET Thailand

On the back of the Three-striped Palm Civet there are three distinct dark brown stripes, that run along the length of the body (fig.), and which are fainter in females.

 

In this civet species, it are only the females that posses a scent gland underneath the tail. This gland confusingly resembles testicles and an untrained eye can consequently easily mistake the female for the male. See also List of Thai Animal Names.
