The World's Smallest Cat Species

Meet the rusty spotted cat (Prionailurus rubiginosus), a wildcat that lives in Sri Lanka, India, and Nepal. Adults of the species weigh between two and 3.5 pounds, and could fit in your palm if they weren't wild cats. Wait until you hear this one's mighty roar!

Watching this little guy, it's hard to believe he is almost full grown. The clip is from an upcoming episode of the new BBC TV show Big Cats. Yeah, that's a contradiction, but I wouldn't want them to pull the segment on the rusty spotted cat just because of the show's title. In case you'd like to see more, here's a video of a couple of well-fed rusty spotted cats who live at a sanctuary.  -via Digg
