Rare Borneo Bay Cat Captured in Camera Trap

5 posts in this topic

Scientists in the U.K. have caught the elusive Borneo bay cat (Pardofelis badia) on camera, along with four other rare species of felines.

Cats are notoriously secretive, and the Borneo bay cat is no exception. But this feline is more mysterious than most. Fewer than 2,500 of them are thought to exist on Borneo (map), the third largest island in the world, and the only place where the cats are known to live. Rarely spotted by scientists and locals, the cats were first photographed in 2003.

Cool looking cat! Hope they make a giant natural reserve for them which IS NOT ALLOWED TO BE LOGGED!

Wonder how big they actually are? I can't use anything in the pictures for size comparison. That cat could be eight inches tall or twenty inches tall.

Those cats wouldn't last long outside their habitat, Borneo is an island, so when it was cut off thousands of years ago and there was no large predators, the size of the cat remained the same
