Genet Riding Buffalos And Rhinoceros, Hluhluwe–iMfolozi Park, Durban, Zululand, KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa

Genets are solitary predators and they feed on a wide spectrum of plants and animals, as they mostly feed opportunistically. However, they strongly prefer animal matter. Overall, they are generally considered omnivorous. However, they feed often on small mammals, such as rodents, shrews, and bats. Small rodents are captured by the back and killed with a bite at the head, then eaten starting with the head. They also eat birds, bird eggs, centipedes, millipedes, scorpions, and various fruits, including figs and olives. In some areas, they feed on poultry from farms.
Genets are also prey for many animals, such as the red fox and the northern goshawk. Other predators include owls, leopards, pythons, domestic dogs and Iberian lynx.
