Cats on film – best of November 2014

The past month has produced a truly excellent group of photos with some rare video footage of clouded leopards.

There are very few videos of wild clouded leopards in their natural habitat and most of these are of the mainland species, not the Sunda clouded leopard, which occurs on Borneo and Sumatra.

In these new videos, the clouded leopards can be seen exploring a tumih tree (Combretocarpus rotundatus), which is a popular scent-marking site for other animals. We also have footage of a curious cat staring at the camera trap before moving towards it.

The little banded linsang makes another appearance showing off its long neck, and an orangutan and sun bear demonstrate that it is not only humans who benefit from the boardwalks to move through the swamp easily.

A big thank you to the Clouded Leopard Project, Point Defiance Zoo & Aquarium and Fresno Chaffee Zoo for supporting this project.
