Common Palm Civet
Even though common palm civets are one of the most common species of civets, little is known about their behavior.
Even though common palm civets are one of the most common species of civets and the most common mammalian carnivore on Palawan island in the Philippines, it is one of the least studied mammals. It is often among the most commonly photographed small carnivores by ground-level camera-traps, yet little is known about their behavior due to their nocturnal, quiet, and secretive nature.
Asian palm civets are elusive, so their reproductive behavior has mostly been observed in a zoo setting and their mating system is unknown.
