No vampire puns here, move along.
An Asian palm civet. Native to indonesia, they are threatened by poaching, and the illegal wildlife trade. Buyers use these viverrids for the production of kopi luwak, a high end coffee made from the feces of the civet.
The genet is such a pretty, little cat-like creature that’s normally nocturnal. While they look like small cats, they belong to the Viverridae family🐱
