Hi,

I spotted this on the BBC website - a new species of clouded leopard has been identified and I thought the pictures were worth sharing! How's this for a gorgeous distant cousin for our little leopards?

Hi

I think from the pics I prefer the mainland one, thoough.

On the subject of wild cats:-
I see that Gayzette bengals have a Serval cub, they have the intention of breeding Savannahs according to their website. Looks fantastic!

Just had a peek Elsa.......He looks fantastic, I didn't realised someone had actually imported a serval into the uk yet.

Imagine bumping into one of his offspring on a dark night somewhere in suburbia! :shock:

...or anywhere really. But he himself, looks really harmless at the moment, though I don't fancy trimming his claws.

I wonder how much an F1 Savannah will be?

Thay had a feature on the 1 o'clock news earlier and they do look magnificent! I don't think the pictures do them justice

Regards
