The Pampas Cat (Leopardus pajeros) is relatively widespread in western South America and its name notwithstanding, the cat can occupy a number of varied habitats not limited to the pampas of Argentina. Zoologists have classified this small South American wild cat into five distinct subspecies which display obvious variations in both average size and the colors & patterns of their fur.
A small, very rare cat, the Bornean bay cat has a slender body with an exceptionally long tail and a round head with small rounded ears. Its coat is reddish-brown (chestnut) with a pale undersides and significantly darker ears. There are faint spots on its undersides and limbs and suggestions of lines in its face. The bay cat may be found only in rocky and scrub areas of the island of Borneo, where it hunts by night, from the ground, and seeks small rodents and birds.
