The Malagasy civet has several alternate names. It is also known as the striped civet and yet again, is also known as the fanaloka. I’ve never heard of a civet before, and certainly not a Malagasy civet, but the animal they appear to resemble most is a fox. Apparently, these cuties are quite small, weighing usually 2.5 kg according to Wikipedia.
