The Clouded Leopard is a specie from the Neofelis genus. It can be found from the Himalayan foothills through mainland Southeast Asia into China.

AppearanceEdit

The clouded leopard has unusually large spots that appear to be clouds, hence the name of the creature. They are shorter than most leopards.

BehaviourEdit

Scientists are not sure exactly how clouded leopards act in the wild. They are probably solitary animals, like most cats. Females give birth to a litter of one to five cubs every year, and the young leopards remain dependent upon their mother for about ten months.

DietEdit

Though clouded leopards are great climbers, scientists believe that they do most of their hunting on the ground, feasting on deer, pigs, monkeys, and smaller fare such as squirrels or birds. They are aided in their hunting by the largest canine teeth (proportionate to body size) of any wild cat.
