West African Oyan (Poiana leightoni)

Set of scaled side and front drawings of the West African Oyan

The West African Oyan (Poiana leightoni) is a linsang species that lives in the Upper Guinean forests in West Africa. Physically, they have a slender and long body with an elongated head and a pointed muzzle. The fur is yellow to red-brown with dark oval spots on the neck, and small spots on the back and legs. The fur on the throat, chest, and belly are lighter in color and free from spots, and the tail has 10 to 12 dark rings. The West African Oyan’s habitat is diminishing due to the logging of tropical forests and bushmeat hunting.

The West African Oyan has a body length in the range of 11.8”-15” (30-38 cm) and total weight of 1.1-1.5 lb (.5-.7 kg). The West African Oyan has a body height between 4.9”-6.3” (12.5-16 cm), body width of 3.3”-4.1” (8.5-10.5 cm), and tail length of 13”-16.9” (33-43 cm). The typical lifespan of the West African Oyan is between 9-16 years.
