We have an animal in MN that some call a civet cat. It is actually a spotted skunk and smells like one too! I believe they are rather rare now, but we had one in our workshop once when I was a kid growing up on a farm and it sprayed my dad!

I've heard the term civet cat in SA too, describing a civet. Co-incidentally I've just had a little friend visiting me from the UK who is extremely interested in all wildlife. We managed to find her a striped skunk one night, that wasn't roadkill, She was telling me all about spotted skunks and had just finished a project on them!

Sorry, I truly didn't mean to offend you, maxx, or anyone else.

I haven't seen that particular speech, before, and felt it needed to be said.

No problem, Roger.... Smiling

I went back and read my post to you....and it was a bit harsh. Sorry about that...

Just went off there because I hade been given speeches twice before along those lines. Once early when I commented on there not being a zoomie when we needed one...and also by the Djuma folks when I heckled Wildearth over their slot system. Basically...."it's free, so shut up" type of thing. Eye-wink

It's true we don't often get such a good closeup.  I just looked at the sightings log and this is only the fourth time.

Hi all,

Ann's right, it was a civet.  Great sighting! Smiling

 

Well, I didn't spell it right, but close!  Can you tell I have been studying the database?  I think others have mentioned seeing them before, but they were always on the other side of the wh and sometimes didn't even stop, just went slinking on by.
