Common Palm Civet

https://faunafocus.com/home/january-2018/#jp-carousel-5944

The common palm civet has a tail that is almost as long as its head and body combined.

Common palm civets are small, weighing only about three kilograms with an average body length of 50 centimeters, and a tail that is 48 centimeters long. They have elongated bodies with short legs, and a tail that is almost as long as their head and body combined.

Unlike other civets, Asian palm civets tails do not have black rings. Rather, they are just tipped black on the very end.
