Common Genet

About Common Genet

The Genet looks very much like a cat with its spotted coat and long tail. But genets have a pointed muzzle and claws that only partially retract when they are not being used. Genets live in woodlands, scrubs and rocky ground. They are nocturnal and do their hunting during the night. They feed on rodents and sometimes birds.
