I found these tracks in the road and asked some experts what they think it is. Some suggested Caracal and Serval, but most were of opinion that it is Civet. I really wanted to see what it was, and I hoped that it was Serval… I would love to see Serval on the farm, or at least know they are here.
First I tried to find a side game-track which I thought it would use, but no luck. In the end, I resorted to putting my trail-cam on the main farm road, where I saw the tracks for several days on the same path, going on for almost a kilometre. I don’t like putting my camera up where there could be more people-movement, however, it seems it blended in well.
The first night I had the camera up on this spot, I found the mystery animals tracks the next morning, on the road just out view of the camera. Frustrating.
I, however, decided not to move it but keep it there as I was sure it was going to walk the road again as it did before and I was right… African Civet.
