The BBC says this is a Sri Lankan rusty spotted cat, but we’re pretty sure they just grabbed a kitten and plopped it in the jungle.
In an adorable preview for the BBC One series Big Cats, a tiny rusty-spotted kitten, one of the world’s smallest species of wild cats, curiously explored his brand new world in the Sri Lankan forest. The tiny feline made his way through the woods, literally testing the waters of a stream, before charging forward to cross.
The Rusty Spotted cat is the world’s smallest feline, they are about half the size of our domestic kitties which makes them about 200 times smaller than a lion, very little is known about the ecology and behaviour of this small and secretive cat.
In this rare footage we see him exploring his forest home in Sri Lanka and like all cats, his natural curiosity is bound to get him into trouble.
