This specimen, a male, was collected from Ehania, Ivory Coast on 12 January 1969 by J. W. Leduc. It was made available to The University of Texas High-Resolution X-ray CT Facility for scanning courtesy of Dr. Blaire Van Valkenburgh of the Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology, University of California, Los Angeles. Funding for scanning and image processing was provided by Dr. Van Valkenburgh and by a National Science Foundation Digital Libraries Initiative grant to Dr. Timothy Rowe of The University of Texas at Austin. The African palm civet is one of several canid carnivorans included in ongoing research of respiratory turbinates by Dr. Van Valkenburgh.
The specimen was scanned by Matthew Colbert on 13 December 2005 along the coronal axis for a total of 855 slices. Each slice is 0.11 mm thick, with an interslice spacing of 0.11 mm and a field of reconstruction of 49.5 mm.
