Clouded leopard caught on camera in Borneo

The Star reported that the clouded leopard, which is the biggest cat in the Borneo jungles, was captured by a camera trap set up by Cardiff University student, Penny Gardner. Ms Gardner was doing a study on wild cattle known as banteng or tembadau.

The rare shot of the elusive cat was caught on camera on June 22. The camera was set up next to a logging road in the Malua forest area close to the well-known Tabin Wildlife Reserve in Lahad Datu.

The clouded leopard population on Borneo island is estimated to be around 5,000.
