Civets prepare for Vietnam move

7 February 2013 Last updated at 18:18 GMT

Two cat-like mammals, that have been captive bred at a north Cornwall zoo, are being flown back to their natural habitat in Vietnam.

The Owston's civet is an endangered species found in the forests of Vietnam, Laos and southern China.

Newquay Zoo started breeding them in 2004 but it is hoped any future offspring fathered by the two males will be released back into the wild.
