Banded Linsang (Prionodon linsang)
The banded linsang is a viverrid, a carnivore in the style of civets and genets: slender, long, cat-like hunters, graceful of movement and beautiful of coat. Banded linsangs live in Brunei, Indonesia, Malaysia, Myanmar, and Thailand. They make nests out of sticks and leaves between tree roots or in burrows, and they eat small mammals, such as squirrels and spiny rats; birds and bird eggs; lizards; and insects. Walker’s Mammals of the World assures us that “unlike many viverrids, Prionodon seems to be free from odor.”
Coco drew a linsang as well.
