The African civet (Civettictis civetta) is the largest representative of the African Viverridae and the sole member of its genus. It is considered common and widely distributed in sub-Saharan Africa. Like all civets it has perineal glands that produce a fluid known as civet, which it spreads on markers in its territory to claim its range.
