Clouded Leopard

Resource Toolbox

CLOUDED LEOPARD ( Felis nebulosa or macroscelis ), a large arboreal cat from the forests of south-east Asia, Sumatra, Java, Borneo and Formosa. This cat, often called the clouded tiger, is beautifully marked, and has an elongated head and body, long tail and rather short limbs. The canine teeth are proportionately longer than in any other living cat. Little is known of the habits of the clouded leopard, but it preys on small mammals and birds, and rarely comes to the ground. The native Malay name is Arimaudahan (” tree-tiger "). The species is nearly related to the small Indian marbled cat (F. marmorata ), and Fontaniers cat (F. tristis ) of Central Asia. (R. L.*)
