On 7 Oct 2014, we were alerted to a juvenile Common Palm Civet (Paradoxurus hermaphroditus) carcass along Mandai Road thanks to a friend, Edward Khoo who was in turn informed by his colleague, Hairi Zack.

Thanks also to Ong Say Lin who provided prompt help to collect the carcass, and Marcus Chua and Joys Tan who helped with measurements and preservation. This specimen will contribute diet and distribution data to the ongoing civet research.

If you have seen any animal carcasses, please contact the Lee Kong Chian Natural History Museum at +65 6516 5082, or email to civetsg@gmail.com with information on the species, exact location and condition of animal.
