Amur Leopard Cat

I forget what kind of wild cat this is, but there's a small section of the zoo that has several small cats that look like they could be domesticated house-cats. Very cute little guys. Edit: Amur Leopard Cat per Ituri. Thanks:)

      That looks like a fishing cat.

      That's what I thought too when I looked at the pic, but that's not the fishing cat exhibit.

      I'm pretty sure that's the Amur leopard cat that's on display in that little set of cat exhibits on Elephant Mesa. Also over there is I believe Arabian wild cats, and formerly west Mexican margay, but I think those are gone.

      Thanks for clearing that one up:) I should have went over there and looked, but forgot about it.

      Prionailurus bengalensis euptilurus/euptilura, the Amur cat, eastern Siberia, in Manchuria, in Korea and on the Tsushima Island in the Korea Strait.

      is this still on exhibit as well as the arabian wild cat?
    • Ituri
      No, neither are.
    There are no comments to display.
