Genets (Genetta) are Old World Mammals from the order Carnivora. They are related to Civets, Mongooses and Fossa. Genets are related to Cats but more closely related to Mongooses.
They are very active creatures, males being seen as more active than females. They are nocturnal and quite solitary, their highest levels of activity being seen right after sunset.
All genets, except for the common genet, live in Africa. Most species prefer woodlands, savannahs and forests. They also prefer dense vegetation such as thickets, thick forests and bushes. They are omnivorous but strongly prefer meat.
They feed on a wide range of matter, small animals such as insects and birds, and berries and bird eggs or other plants. If there is poultry nearby, they will attack and feed on that. They are and can be kept as exotic pets even though it is considered quite rare and cruel.
Taxidermy (Hunting Genet):
Thorough preparation is the key factor to ensuring a high-quality final product. All hides are tanned and oiled using the world’s very best available chemicals and processes to ensure permanence and longevity.
Forms are selected to ensure the best fit and posture will be altered to suit you, the client’s preference without additional cost. Natural habitat bases are custom-made for full mount trophies without additional cost.
Only the finest materials and 30 years of professional experience are used in defining your trophies in a whole new way. The final trophies are almost Life-Formed. When the restoration is required, every effort is made to repair cuts and abrasions, and to minimise bullet damage. Natural scarring is kept unless otherwise requested.
