Located in the Leopard Trail, you'll get to see these civets at their natural habitat of trees complemented by manmade vines and branches, which is where they spend most of their time at. The feeders are strategically hung in areas near the walkways throughout the habitat so that you can observe the civets' feeding and foraging behaviours up close with no barriers AT ALL! ?

Don't worry about your safety though, these tamed animals are harmless! Just remember to stay on the designated pathways, and don't touch or feed the animals!
