This is a portrait of a clouded leopard (Neofelis nebulosa) so named because of the way the coat looks. That truly beautiful coat has brought this animal into the endangered species area. It is also one of the smallest of the big cats but has the largest canine teeth – measuring up to 9 inches – of all the big cats. Habitat is usually jungle and the cat is nocturnal. If your local zoo has one, it would be worth the time used.
