Leopard Cat Pictures

Eight fine leopard cat pictures. This cat is also called the Asian leopard cat (Prionailurus bengalensis). These are images that I have refined in Photoshop to improve the image quality. There has been no other form of image editing. The pictures are either published under a creative commons license (siwild - camera trap images, thanks) or I have assessed the picture as being in the public domain or publication is justified under fair use (1). Click on the images to see larger versions and on the link to go to the Picasaweb library. This cat is called the money cat by the Chinese because the spots look like coins.


Camera trap image. Very interesting image of fine quality. The habitat is clearly shown. The eyes reflect in the usual way the flash light from the camera. From Leopard Cat

Note: (1) Fair use claimed on the basis that the pictures of the leopard cat published here will have no detrimental financial effect on the website from which they were sourced and they are published here for educational purposes. The images have been improved also.

Asian Leopard Cat

The Asian leopard cat is the wildcat "parent" of the Bengal cat. It is only the actual parent when the Bengal cat is a first generation cat - an F1. Nearly all Bengal cats are F4 and over or Stud Book Tradition (SBT) cats.

The Asian leopard cat is sometimes called the leopard cat. One person at least calls it the Asian Bengal cat!

Some people domesticate the Asian leopard cat. It is a small wildcat and of course looks like the Bengal cat. It is not predisposed to be being domesticated. It is a very independent and single minded wildcat.

If you would like to read and see more on the Asian leopard cat here are some articles:
