Rusty Spotted Cat in Bandhavgarh

Rusty Spotted Cat - Teerath Singh
Nocturnal animals escape many eyes in forests like Bandhavgarh. Teerath Singh an avid naturalist and tour operator discovered much to his delight that the cat in his camera was a rusty spotted cat. This is one of the smallest wild cat in the World, found only in India and Sri Lanka.  

Its distribution that was earlier noted is expanding with discovery like this. New discoveries in beleaguered wildlife world are heartening. Some time back a mouse deer was photographed in Kanha - seen  after a gap of many many years.
