    Civet: "I just had the weirdest experience. These alien creatures captured me, poked, prodded, measured and took samples of my blood, fur and scent glands!"
    Second Civet: "Ah, your crazy! Must have just been a wild dream..."

    Its 11.40 PM now in my country. A couple of these were just fighting loudly on my rooftop (woke up my parents)...that's why I suddenly searched for civets videos. I smell them almost everyday, my cats seems scared of them. The strong pandan scent they left gave me headache... 😷 They are cute, tho...

      @Jesse This is the *second* disrespectful comment I've seen coming out of you on this video. You sound *very* intelligent and civilised, bud.

      @*ᒪᗩᗪY ᐯOᒪᗪEᗰOᖇT* Ive read otherwise about what you guys do to them when they get anoying. Also you are telling me not to do what you just did, and if you base all of that on my previous comment you are prolly the one that feel superior or has a
      inferiority problem thinking everyone else around em is better.

      Nope. People rarely met them because they're nocturnal.
      Keep your judgmental prejudice to yourself, buddy. No need to throw other ethnicities down just to make you feel superior and better about yourself.

    Glad I watched this. I've been so tempted to start buying old school perfumes, like Chanel and Guerlain, but this gives me the resolve to keep away. The coffee thing reminds me why I won't ever eat foie gras either.

      I hope you don't eat any meat either, I mean at least these civets are not to be killed.

    "When an economic value for an animal is discovered, it is often a curse"... yeah, the curse of being guaranteed not to go extinct.

      @Malaysian Tropikfusion then why is it a passive agressive question then ? :D haha. Most countries ive been visited in the south or in asia have been exrtremly cruel towards animals compared to our standards here in Denmark. Can a human be evil only because what he does towards animals ?

    • Malaysian Tropikfusion
      Malaysian Tropikfusion 2 years ago

      @Jesse Yeah, I guess I'm "prolly" guilty of liking a Johamala from Assam, even though I live in Malaysia. Makes a lot of sense.

      @Malaysian Tropikfusion if you feel judged by that question, you are prolly guilty :D
