What are "clouded leopards"?

Clouded Leopards are beautiful, endangered cats found in southeast asia. The markings are unique to cats. Huge rosettes. Males top out around 35 pounds, females closer to 30. They come in 2 distinct colors. The background or field color is either a light buff or orange. Two different species that evolved at different locations.
They can rotate their "thumbs" to enable them to climb DOWN trees. Zoos have never been able to mate them in captivity. That's the big drawback. But gawd are they beautiful. You can now buy a Savannah cat that goes 35 pounds and is lanky and tall for $20,000 or so. Or get a mangy one for $10,000. If they could breed clouded leopards in captivity and domesticate them after a few generations they would sell many of them. They did it with the asian leopard cat and an egyptian mau. Now we have the bengal cat, which goes for big bucks.
Imagine putting your 35 pound clouded leopard on a leash and taking it for a walk. It might rip the leash out of your hand at the first sight of a squirrel though. 
Chuck's google link is outstanding and clearly shows the two different colors.

My sister in law has some of those hybrid cats @ her wolf sanctuary, beautiful animals, but not what I'd consider a good "pet" that's how she ends up with them, she adopts the animals after people find out how "wild" they still are. This is "Pussy Galore"

Misty mornings!

The best ones are before a day full of sunshine, fragrant fields and two wheel tootling on my good Guzzi!


On the other hand. Gotta be a real warm day before I want to ride more than few hours in this. Dry clothes and a big hot meal never looked so good.  :grin:
