Update on the civets

Some of you might remember that we recived 3 baby civets some weeks ago. Although we are mainly a primate sanctuary sometimes other animals arrive on our doorstep and we take care of them as well as we can. Sadly it did not end well for two of our civets... After growing and triving for some weeks on milk formula, a few weeks ago two of them stopped eating properly. We don't know the reason for this and we tried our hardest to get them to eat and drink, we tried both with the milk and solid foods like bananas and meat, they also got medicines and veterinary care. But sadly the two of them didn't make it...

The good news is that the third civet is doing very well and has grown a lot! He eats a lot with his favourits beeing banans and rats. He is an independent little caracter and we do hope to find a solution to realease him back into the wild, if not he'll always have a home here.
