Leopard Cat (Prionailurus bengalensis)
Sungei Buloh, 9th June 2015

This Leopard Cat carcass was first found by Halilah Ahmad (1st photo), and was subsequently donated to the Lee Kong Chian Natural History Museum. This subadult male was found to have no visible external or internal injuries, except for a small wound on his right hind ankle.

Leopard Cats have been occasionally detected on camera traps set up within the core area of Sungei Buloh Wetland Reserve, and this find in the Sungei Buloh Wetland Reserve Extension, although tragic, is evidence that Leopard Cats likely occur in this area of the Nature Reserve as well.
