A rare cat, the marbled cat resembles a
long-tailed cat in size and build. Its beautiful, striking coat is pale
brown, with irregular slightly darker brown blotches sharply outlined in
dark brown or black. Its long cylindrical tail is full from rump to tip
and carries its body pattern.
The marbled cat may be found in the forests
of the Maylay peninsula, Sumatra, Borneo and some neighboring small
islands, where it hunts by day, from trees, and seeks birds and eggs.
