Scottish Wild Cat by Steve

Currently unavailable for purchase

The Scottish Wild Cat is Britain’s only remaining true wild cat species. Sadly cross-breeding with domestic cats suggests the extinction of the true breed in the wild is inevitable.

Photographed at the British Wildlife Centre, Lingfield, Surrey on 24 April 2011.

Camera information: Nikon D7000 with 18-200 VR lens at 200mm. 1/125s, f/5.6, iso 250, raw.
Software: Capture NTX

    This is beautiful! It’s easy to see why people wanted to domesticate this cat.

  • Thanks, Kathleen
