The Spotted Linsang is a linsang found in the forests of the central and eastern Himalaya. It is short, light coloured terrestrial mammal, with a slender body, a pointed head and small limbs. It stalks its prey by crawling on its belly, where it is often mistaken for a python or other heavy-built, even venomous snakes due to its slender appearance. Its diet consists of insects, rodents, lizards, birds and small mammals. It weighs less than 2 pounds (1 kilogram).
