The civet is a mostly nocturnal animal, from the Viverridae family, found in Africa and the East Indies. It is approximately 17-28 inches in length, excluding its long tail, and weighs about 3 to 10 pounds. The palm civet of Southern Asia is a fruit-eating mammal. Although the Viverridae family is distantly related to the Felidae family, the civet "cat" is not a cat. Indeed, it is more related to the mongoose than to any cat.
