There is a world somewhere between reality and fiction. Although ignored by many, it is very real and so are those living in it. This forum is about the natural world. Here, wild animals will be heard and respected. The forum offers a glimpse into an unknown world as well as a room with a view on the present and the future. Anyone able to speak on behalf of those living in the emerald forest and the deep blue sea is invited to join.

There has been a new study on the weights of the Sunda Clouded Leopard (Neofelis Diardi) that gives a good insight into the real size of these cats. The study takes measurements of both captive and and wild individuals. All the captive Clouded Leopards in this study was once wild but has been put in captivity for different reasons not specified in the study. 

A few things to note, all the captive speciments were fasted for 12-14 hours before they were tranqulized and measured. And the body condition of all Clouded Leopards in the study were assessed after the following criteria: 1/5 Cachexia, 2/5 Underweight, 3/5 Ideal weight, 4/5 Overweight, 5/5 Obese. (FR) are wild individuals and © are captive individuals.

The results:

I was very impressed by the weight of these individuals, especially these wild males weighing well over 20 kilos. And the smaller individuals all being underweight. It`s quite fascinating to see measurements of a species that we know very little about.
Big cats is the most special and awsome thing out there !
