Smallest cat in the world recently found in Visakhapatnam, India.

The Rusty Spotted Cat ( http://www.iucnredlist.org/details/18149/0 )is the smallest cat in the world. It is endemic to Indian Subcontinent and found no where else. Their population is threatened by habitat loss and hybridization with domestic cats. They are protected under the Indian Wildlife (Protection) Act, 1972 under Schedule I.

Absolutely nothing オンライン カジノ is known about the ecology and status of this species as there are virtually no studies on them as yet! While most of the researchers run after the charismatic Tigers and Leopards all the time, small wild cats and other small mammals are mostly neglected in India. Their crucial role in the ecology is often underrated.

This specimen was rescued by wildlife authorities from a dry deciduous forest patch very close to the sprawling coastal city of Visakhapatnam. We urge every one to support us in conserving such rare and endangered species which are a natural heritage to the nation.
