The African Civet, Civettictis civetta, is the largest African member of the Genet, Civet and Binturong family, the Viverridae. It reaches 20 kg in weight but more usually weighs about 12 kg. Civets are omnivores, catching small prey animals but also eating grass, fruit and other vegetable matter. They can even eat poisonous Strychnos fruits, and poisonous millipedes, frogs, snakes and noxious grasshoppers and beetles. They are quite rare here in South Africa, and I haven't yet seen one in the wild. This is in lead pencil, colour added with Photoshop.
Aww. Nice picture.
It's Oy from the Dark Tower books!
It's like made on demand. I have great fondness for all such small carnivores always overshadowed by more popular species but not less fascinating.
it looks nice. I did not know such a beautiful mammal
Such a beautiful pattern, I hope you get to see one in the wild soon pal!
Very distinct! Good detail.
