Neofelis nebulosa (Clouded Leopard)

Wikipedia Abstract

The clouded leopard (Neofelis nebulosa) is a wild cat found from the Himalayan foothills through mainland Southeast Asia into China. In 2008 it was classified as Vulnerable by the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN). Its total population is suspected to be fewer than 10,000 mature individuals, with a decreasing population trend, and no single population numbering more than 1,000 adults.
