    The stinky tenrec (Feteotenrec bicolor) is a species tolerated by the cityfinchs, somewhat similar in appearance and habits to the homeworld skunks, polecats, zorillas and moonrats - four unrelated but strongly convergent clades of smelly black and white nocturnal omnivores.
    The stinky tenrec lairs in disused chambers of the cityfinch nests, and feeds extensively on the symbiotic and parasitic beetles, lizards, and other small animals that infest the nests. However, it will also take dead and injured cityfinch adults and nestlings, and at night leaves the safety of the nest to forage for ripe fruit and potential mates.
