No. Civet devicate in latrines on the ground.

Clue ... this is not an incidental happening but an intentional action by the animal involved.

I doubted myself before posting this but, on my last trip witnessed two cheetah climb much higher into a tree than I would previously have imagined and not on a fallen trunk but a huge marula, and one did defecate :hmz:

:thumbs_up:

Cheetah indeed!

Cheetah as a rule use trees as territorial markers. The devicate and urinate in the tree, on a branch to leave their scent. They do the same on the KNP road markers!

You are IT! :thumbs_up:
