Cape genet (Genetta tigrina)

The Cape genet is a carnivore mammal, related to the African linsang and to the civets. It lives only in South Africa. Like other genets, it is nocturnal and arboreal. They prefer to live in the riparian zones of forests, as long as they are not marshy areas. Body length ranges from 49 cm to 60 cm and the tail from 42 cm to 54 cm. Their diet consists of animals such as: birds, spiders, scorpions, fish, and insects. Heavily adapted to arboreal living, the Cape genet often remains hidden during the day in a tree or takes strong cover on ground to avoid heat. At night the Cape genet becomes more active, using its strong eyesight and agile capabilities to be a highly effective predator.
