Large Indian civet Viverra zibetha occurs throughout mainland South East Asia into the Himalayan foothills of India and Nepal. As a characteristic species of the forest floor civets are disproportionately impacted by the pervasive snares – the silent killers – throughout Cambodia’s forests. Large Indian civets are valued for their aromatic scent glands and in this video from the Southern Cardamom National Park this male civet can be seen marking his territory using the glands in his neck. Wildlife Alliance patrols have removed over 150,000 snares since 2002 in the Cardamoms giving this species, and many others, a better chance of survival.
