Fishing Cat [Prionailurus viverrinus] may weigh as much as 35 lbs. These nocturnal felines of south Asia live in habitats that are close to water, blowing away the stereotype that all cats dread being wet. They are excellent swimmers and primarily eat aquatic creatures, like amphibians, fish, and ducks. In order to snatch their water-dwelling meals, they stand in the shallows and scoop passing critters with their paws. They are also able to dive after prey as well!

Fishing cat mother and kitten. The fishing cat is a medium-sized wild cat of South and Southeast Asia. It is an endangered species; over the last decade, the fishing cat population throughout much of its Asian range declined severely. Like its closest relative, the leopard cat, the fishing cat lives along rivers, streams and mangrove swamps. It is well adapted to this habitat, being an eager and skilled swimmer.
