The leopard cat or Prionailurus bengalensis is a small wild cat native to continental South, Southeast and East Asia.
Since 2002 it has been listed as Least Concern on the IUCN Red List as it is widely distributed although threatened by habitat loss and hunting in parts of its range.
A leopard cat or Prionailurus bengalensis is about the size of a domestic cat, but more slender, with longer legs and well-defined webs between its toes. Its small head is marked with two prominent dark stripes and a short and narrow white muzzle.
There are two dark stripes running from the eyes to the ears and smaller white streaks running from the eyes to the nose. The backs of its moderately long and rounded ears are black with central white spots.
Prionailurus bengalensis body and limbs are marked with black spots of varying size and color, and along its back are two to four rows of elongated spots.
However, in their huge range, leopard cats or Prionailurus bengalensis vary so much in coloration and size of spots as well as in body size and weight that initially they were thought to be several different species.
The fur color is yellowish brown in the southern populations, but pale silver-grey in the northern ones.
The black markings may be spotted, rosetted, or may even form dotted streaks, depending on subspecies. In northern China and Siberia, they weigh up to 16 lb., and have head-body lengths of up to 30 in.
Generally, they put on weight before winter and become thinner until spring. Shoulder height is about 16 in.
Felis bengalensis are found in Asian continent, Siberia to Borneo.
