10. African Civet

African Civet

The African Civet is in the class of Mammalia and is the largest in its family of Viverridae in Africa but enough of the technicalities and jargons. African Civets are found in the forests of central and southern Africa as well as the savannahs most especially Mail, Niger and Chad. These group of weird African animals are rarely found in dry areas but places surrounding water as they are also endowed with the ability to swim very well. They are terrestrial nocturnal animals (that is why you have probably not seen them during the day). The typical African Civets are usually black and white to pale yellowish and grey spotted, they have got short legs and pointed nose and definitely can be easily mistaken for a weird like spotted Hyena.
