The Malayan Civet (Viverra tangalunga), also known as the Oriental Civet, is a civet found on the Malay Peninsula and the islands of Sumatra, Bangka, Borneo, the Rhio Archipelago, and the Philippines.
Malay civets are nocturnal which means, they active at night from 1800 to 0700. Usually, they are terrestrial but they climb into tree. Despite their cat-like appearance and similar behavior and traits, they are not felines. Their fur may be gray or brown, and may be marked in various patterns. Most of Viverra tangalunga are Carnivores but some of them are solitary, omnivorous and are primarily terrestrial. They feed on others animals including small vertebrate and invertebrate.
