The #BandedPalmCivet (Hemigalus derbyanus), sometimes simply called the #PalmCivet, is a species of #civet native to Southeastern Asia. It is about the size of a Domestic Cat, just under two feet long and about seven pounds. It has a long, pointy face, with a body to match. Its legs are somewhat short and end with five-fingered toes with retractable claws. This creature has short, dense fur, usually cream colored. Obviously, as its name suggest, it is covered with black bands that stretch from its nose to its tail. The Banded Palm Civet is a carnivore, feeding on small mammals, reptiles, fish, insects, and eggs. It is listed as Near Threatened on the IUCN Red List.
