Clouded Leopard (Neofelis nebulosa)

The smallest "big" cat, only 30-50 pounds full-grown. A tree-dweller, they have short legs, big feet, and long tails, to help their balance and climbing skills. Listed as Vulnerable in the wild, they have a wide range in tropical Asia, but are threatened by high rates of deforestation and continued hunting for their pelts. Their numbers have probably declined 20% over the past 15 years. They also have the longest canine teeth relative to body size of any cat. Difficult to breed in captivity, partly because the male often accidentally kills the female while breeding.
