Night time exploration at Alexandra Road

In October, we received a query for confirmation of the identity of this animal that was seen near Alexandra Road at 11.30pm.

We took a look at the photos – a masked face, a pair of glowing eye shine and a long black tail, it is a common palm civet! This lone civet was seen feeding on fruits that have dropped from the trees. We are glad that this civet still has available fruits to feed on and is comfortable to roam around freely in our urban city.

Special thanks to Lum Shin Si for the photos and for sharing this sighting with us! Do share with us if you have any mammal sightings here!
