Sunda Clouded Leopard (young male)
A young male was spotted one night in the forest trails. This was a magical experience as we found it just sitting on a rock staring down at us and then lay down to groom itself. We spent 30 minutes just silently observing this young fella where he really didn't bother since he is the king of the rainforest and the top of the food chain.
I have decided to post this in conjunction to my Snow Leopard class that I have just obtained. Leopards are definitely my most favourite wild cats.
The Sunda clouded leopard is a medium-sized wild cat native to Borneo and Sumatra. It is listed as Vulnerable on the IUCN Red List since 2015, as the total effective population probably consists of fewer than 10,000 mature individuals, with a decreasing population trend. On both Sunda islands, it is threatened by deforestation.
