Range Description

Bourlon's Genet is restricted to the Upper Guinean rainforests, in Sierra Leone, Liberia, Guinea, and Cte dIvoire. May also occur in mixed rainforest-savanna zones (Gaubert 2003, 2013). A specimen collected from Oda in Ghana in 1946 has been attributed to this species, but the true origin of this animal is in question (Gaubert 2013). The first picture of a live Bourlon's Genet was obtained recently during a camera-trapping survey in the Putu Mountains, south-east Liberia (Greengrass 2013).
