These skulls belong to the Asian palm civet (Paradoxurus hermaphroditus)! They can be found in South and South East Asia.
They have gained cultural notoriety for their role in the preparation of Kopi Luwak, one of the world's most expensive coffees. Civets eat raw coffee beans and, via their unique digestive enzymes, ferment them in their intestinal tracts. The civets then defecate out the fermented beans, which are collected for eventual human consumption!
