Show us your non-african little cats

7 posts in this topic

I thought it might be nice to have a thread for the small, non-African cats, like leopard cat, jungle cat, south American cats like ocelot, etc. We already have a thread for small African cats, big cats and so on elsewhere, but I had a trawl and couldn't find one for the other smaller cats of the world. So here's one to start, from my recent trip to Borneo:

Some horrible contribution to this thread as it deserves more species :) 

1. Leopard cat -- Deramakot reserve , Borneo

2. Pallas cat -- Yolyn Am, Gobi gurvansaikhan national park, Mongolia
3. Iberian Lynx -- Andujar Np, Spain

Your travels have yielded such seldom observed species.

 

Very glad to see all three here.

 

I've never encountered any of them, much less photographed them.

 

Thank you!

I love all cats, but on my top three list the eurasian lynx will always be my number one spot :-) Sorry lions and leopards, it`s nothing personal ;-) This is a habituated lynx, in a wildlife-park, that in africa would be like the rehab-parks around the continent. This is taken is during winter as you see.

Great thread idea @kittykat23uk.  Of course, I will have to contribute the Marbled cat we saw in Deramakot, Borneo about a month after your trip. I still love that this is a different cat exhibiting the exact same behavior as yours did..

Here is a blurry Leopard Cat, also from Borneo:

Here is an Ocelot from Belize. Unfortunately, this was one of our first trips to the rain forest and I agreed to see this Ocelot that was attracted by chicken thrown by one of the lodge workers.  In hindsight, I shouldn't have supported this.  Luckily, I have seen other Ocelot since but never have I gotten such a good photo.

Do, Bobcats count as a small cat?  I am assuming they do so I looked through my website and pulled a couple of my favorite images.  I have been lucky enough to see lots of Bobcats.

And, here is one from our yard...
