      It's amazing how much chunkier, darker and more akin to a binturong this subspecies looks when compared with the Himalayan Palm Civets (P. larvata larvata) I saw in April.

      This photo taken by @Glutton shows what I mean quite well:

      Superb.....

      Is the Himalayan sub-species also at Hamerton? Don't remember seeing them in the summer when I was there.

      @Newzooboy - No, I saw them at Zoo Dortmund :) which is the only place the subspecies is kept in Europe.
