The Golden Cat

. Tuesday, May 18, 2010

Golden Cat or fire cat (Catopuma temminicki) is a kind of mysterious and very difficult to find today, very little knowledge about the behavior and ecology of this species, including their population in the area. Life pattern of these animals remains unclear unlike other types of wild cats. Creatures found this slide from lowland until height of 2000 m above sea level.

The main characteristic of the Golden Cat is almost golden brown all over his body (as the name implies) but who are also colored gray or dark brown. There is also the type who is black and this is the most endangered species. Fur color ranging from light brown to dark blond. At the bottom of the head and tail are white lines that can be seen easily. in 1996, through a photo Trapping, for the first time successfully photographed a Golden cat with jet black colored.

Their lives are not other solitary cat species and are often seen moving in groups, pairs or families. Generally these animals move on land even though they are good climber and active during the day, although they are great hunters of the night.

This golden cats living areas spread from Tibet, Nepal, China, Burma, Thailand to Indochina, Malaysia, and Sumatra. Another feature of this golden cats have an average weight for an adult cat the size of these species around 8-12 kg with a length from head to tail reach 1.2 meters. The animal was rather long compared with normal cats and never met with entirely black.
