Most African Civets live in the Congo Basin Rainforest. The days in the dry season are getting two weeks longer every decade due to global warming and climate change. Overhunting can become a huge problem for them. The Civet has been used commercially in perfumes since the 1920s and is hunted specifically for its musk to sell it to companies. Some new adaptations I believe that the African Civet will have are a change in color to their fur, the paws will change in size and texture, and the ability to hear nearby humans or animals. I believe these will help them survive because the color in fur can help protect the skin underneath from climate change and the paws can give them momentum to escape predators.
