Leopard Cats: The #Leopard #Cat (Prionailurus bengalensis) is a small wild cat of South and East Asia. Since 2002, it has been listed as Least Concern by IUCN as it is widely distributed, but threatened by habitat loss and hunting in parts of its range. There are twelve leopard cat subspecies, which differ widely in appearance. The leopard cat's name is derived from the leopard-like spots prevalent in all subspecies, but its relation to the leopard is distant.
