Common Palm Civet of Siglap Estate

A recent study conducted by NUS revealed that there are about 20-30 common palm civets living in Siglap and Opera Estate. And the good news is.... they are breeding. Below is a photography account of a night at Siglap area. We encountered a family of civets with young. The kittens were quite playful. We had a good time watching them playing and exploring the trees.
