This is one of the smallest cat species in the world, with a fully grown adult’s body length ranging from 38 – 48cm and only weighing 0.8-1.6kg. Although at home in the canopy, they are nocturnal predators that hunt on the forest floor and uses their climbing abilities to escape from predators. Found in India and Sri Lanka, they prefer a dry deciduous forest, scrub, grassland and rocky areas.
