Jungle Cat

Felis chaus


On 29th of Dec, 2017, while we were birding at Velavador, a Jungle cat appeared in front us. It almost ignored us and walked steadily towards a near by water hole. We approached the cat very cautiously from our vehicle keeping a pretty distance.

Congratulations Shah, your Jungle Cat is our Spotting of the Day!

"Slender and long-legged, and with distinctive rounded ears topped by small black tufts, this magnificent Jungle Cat (Felis chaus) is our Spotting of the Day! This species is native to the Middle East, South and Southeast Asia, and southern China. Found in habitats with adequate water and dense vegetation, the jungle cat is typically diurnal and hunts throughout the day".
