owstoni


They
are found in southern Yunan and southwest Guangxi provinces in
China; northern Vietnam; and northern Laos.  The typical
weight is 2-3 kg (4.4 to 6.6 pounds), length 50-60cm.

10cm, by the way, is the width of my palm across the knuckles 
(which is pretty convenient sometimes).  So the adult palm
civet is five to six palms long.

    If memory serves, aren’t these guys the tasty morsels that were determined to be the natural reservoir of the SARS virus a couple of years ago?

    The palm civets above are Chrotogale owstoni. The ones that carried the SARS virus were of a different genus, Peguma.
