Bay Cat Recorded on Camera: Zoological Society of London

The rare bay cat has been trapped on camera in a formerly uninspected rainforest, reveals the Zoological Society of London. It had just been captured in the wild for the first time in the year 2003.

The bay cat had been captured earlier in the camera only a few times in its Borneo forest home. However, more photos of the bay cat have been captured as compared with earlier times with evidence of four additional wild cat species.

As per the news release, the part where these species have been found is the only part out of four forest section in all of Borneo where all five species, including the Sunda clouded leopard, leopard cat, flat-headed cat and marbled cat have been found till now.

"We discovered that randomly placed cameras have a big influence on the species recorded", said Oliver Wearn, a researcher at ZSL and Imperial College London.

All the five cat species detailed previously are attractive and are vital parts of the forest ecology and predators of a large variety of other animals. These species are also `highly-threatened'. Moreover, scientists are little aware regarding the behaviors of the rare bay cat, but the species are supposed to be at danger of extinction. This is because of extensive loss of its surroundings on the third biggest island in the world.
