Himalayan Palm Civet

Lithe and one that prefers solitude , this one is also called ‘gem- faced’ civet.


This particular one remained hidden behind the trees for quite a while . Just when I was almost convinced that I’d not see it at all,  it decided to come out of hiding for a fleeting moment and then scampered out of sight 🙂 What a gem !


Eyes popping out 🙂

From the Sikkim diaries 🙂
