Palm civets

Family: Viverridae
Genus: Paradoxurus

Species on page:

+ Asian palm civet (Paradoxurus hermaphroditus)

Civets are a heterogeneous group of feliform (cat-like) carnivores.
They include some but not all members of the Viverridae and the Eupleridae families.
For instance, genets, which are not considered civets per se, are more closely related to the African civets, than either of these group are to the Malagasy civets.
