A weasel relative, the solitary genet rests during the day high up in a tree or another animal’s abandoned burrow. At night it’s on the move, climbing and leaping from tree to tree in search of small prey. Stalking and pouncing, the genet catches a snack.

Excellent binocular vision enables the genet to accurately judge distances, an important skill for leaping and pouncing.
