New leopards in Wild Cats World Leopard Conservation Project

On this picture you see the 2 new Wild Cats World leopard ambassadors: Felicia and brother Floris. Felicia will have our Felix as future partner and for Floris we have found a great home at a new association in our huge leopardproject. More info about the progress in our Conservation Project and the association with new partners in this, will follow shortly. Felicia and Floris are 3 weeks young, born in February 2013. The first ambassador Feline & Felix turned 18 months old and Feline’s future partner Félipe is 6 months now. In April Félipe will be moved permanently to our Spotted Cats Conservation Project in the Eastern Cape, S.A. and he will be introduced in time to Feline and if all goes well to Felix. If they get on well they can use two huge enclosures for the time being until Felicia arrives and they all reach the age of sexual maturity.

Cat of the month

African Golden Cat (Profelis Aurata)

The African Golden Cat (Profelis aurata) is a medium-sized wild cat distributed over the rainforests of West and Central Africa. It is about 80 cm (31.5 inches) long, and has a tail of about 30 cm (approximately one foot) in length. It is a close relative of both the Caracal and the Serval. However, current classification places it as the only member of the genus Profelis.

Due to its extremely hidden living style, not much is known about this cat’s behaviour.

The African Golden Cat is able to climb, but hunts primarily on the ground. Prey includes rodents, birds and monkeys. It also hunts duiker and even the Giant Forest Hog.
