This poor genet has lost its foot. It had found a very cozy niche up in the rafters of this building.
Recognised by the black-tipped tail which distinguishes them from the Small-spotted Genet.
Under stress, they will emit a musky odour from an anal gland.
They are capable of catching birds flying overhead by jumping into air to catch them.
Their food consists mainly of rats, mice, locusts, beetles, birds and wild fruits.
They are only seen at night when they come out to hunt so seeing this one during the day and being able to get pics of it was a real treat.
