Javan leopard cat

The Javan leopard cat is a vulnerable subspecies of leopard cat native to the Indonesian islands of Java and Bali. It probably preys on Javan ferret badgers, birds, rodents and other animals. This picture was photographed in 1896. It was probably prey for the recently extinct tigers there on the islands. It is one of the 13 subspecies of leopard cat along with the Bengal, Sumatran, Chinese, Southern, Amur, Bornean, Western, Iriomote, Hainan, Visayan, and Tsushima.
