Have any of you found any difference in adult temperament between males and females?

I do not have personal experience, but I have done lots of research. Genetta tigrina (the Cape, Blotched or Large Spotted Genet) aren't known to be social animals, and in most solitary species differences (physical and behavioral) between males and females are minimal. Females of most small mammals tend to be more high-strung though, and males tend to be more laid-back. However, I can't say one is better than the other.

I have heard that Small spotted genets are said to be more social than large spotted genets. But both genders will likely be active, avoid sitting still (so holding and snuggles are generally not favored) but they do like to climb up onto your shoulder.

Hope this helps : )

Thanks Smile I have worked with this species but only a single individual (a male) so am familiar with care.

Related species such as civets have a habit of turning into violent steel-jawed-snap-traps upon hitting maturity and this is normal.for them.

The male tigrina I worked with was very placid. Not cuddly (I don't think anyone should expect cuddly from a non domestic animal) but quite happy to interact.

I was hoping to find someone that has worked with both sexes and can clarify any difference in temperament if there is one.

I believe the user Buggle owns a male spotted genet. Could try PM'ing her.

5 Dogs, 2 cats, 2 leopard geckos, 1 guinea pig, 1 axolotl, and a coatimundi currently in my family. 🙂

Exotic "wishlist": red fox, arctic fox, gray fox, bat eared fox, fennec fox, mink, muntjac deer, owl (any species).

But Buggle's genet is a small-spotted genet. What if there is a difference between small-spotteds and large spotteds?
