Visayan Leopard Cat

Prionailurus bengalensis rabori

At least 95% of their population has been wiped out. It is now known to survive only in the last few remaining forest patches on the islands of Panay, Negros and Cebu.

The Visayan leopard cat is one of the most distinct, attractively marked, and by far the smallest of all races of leopard cats weighing between 1.5 and 2.5 kg. It’s nocturnal and during the day it spends its time in dens that may be hollow trees, cavities under roots, or caves.
