Mammalian species available in the markets


Paguma larvata - Masked palm civet

 

CITES II

 

A number of the specimens in the markets were apparently captive bred although many had obvious snare trap wounds.   

 

SPECIAL PAGE -- Palm Civets (Paguma larvata) and SARS


Preparation of the civets involved dunking them into a vat of boiling water/oil and then stripping them of their fur.  The picture below shows a dead civet blur being dunked in the vat before being depillated.
