    Hi Michel,

    The genet you saw (or at least the one in the picture) is actually the Large spotted genet Genetta maculata, rather than the Common genet, Genetta genetta.

      Hi Charles,
      My documentation on genet is not enough good !
      OK my genet is not G genetta but I read large spotted genetta is Genetta tigrina ! What are differencies between these too genet G tigrina and G maculata (panther genet)?

    Hi Michel,

    Sorry for the delayed reply. Genet taxonomy is in a state of flux at the moment, with lots of splitting and name changing going on. Genetta tigrina is now officially known as Genetta maculata, hence the confusion.
