Chinese Mountain Cat

Chinesemountaincat

After a four-year effort, conservationists have the first photographs of the elusive Chinese mountain cat, taken by remote cameras triggered by body heat.
"These [new camera-trap] pictures will call attention to one of the rarest and most beautiful small cats," said Jim Sanderson, a cat specialist with the Wildlife Conservation Network who has studied the animal for the last four years.

"Until now, even cat specialists had only seen this animal as skins or in less than perfect shape in zoos," he said.

No one knows how many of the shy high-altitude cats are left in the wild. Link
