Very sad discovery. Heard a dreadful screaming last night. Feared the cats had caught a baby squirrel. I went out to look but couldn’t find the creature. Then just now I discovered this baby civet. We had cleared a bit of the garden before new year. Perhaps this little guy couldn’t manage to jump like before. So very upsetting!
On the first day of 2014, we received news about an unfortunate Common Palm Civet (Paradoxurus hermaphroditus) kitten that had probably fallen off from a roof from the Taglin Halt area. The kitten had no erupted teeth, which indicates that it is still suckling from its mother.
This civet carcass would be added as a specimen to a zoological collection that would be used for scientific research and education.
We thank Lucy Davis, who is part of the Tanglin Halt Wildlife Watch for the call.
