Cretan wildcat

The Cretan wildcat (Felis Sylvestris Cretensis) is a European wildcat subspecies that inhabits the Greek island of Crete and was first described in 1953. Long feared extinct, participants of an expedition by the University of Perugia managed to capture an individual in 1996. The wildcats of Scotland, Mediterranean, and Caucasus are considered to be subspecies of the European wildcat.
