Listed as Vulnerable on the IUCN Red list, Clouded Leopards are considered the smallest "big" cat, weighing in at only 30-50 pounds full-grown. A tree-dweller, they have short legs, big feet, and long tails, to help their balance and climbing skills. Native to the Himilayan foothills, Southeast Asia and China, Clouded Leopards have a wide range in tropical Asia, but are increasingly threatened by high rates of deforestation and poaching for their pelts. They get their name from their unusual pattern of spots. They also have the longest canine teeth relative to body size of any cat. Difficult to breed in captivity, partly because the male often accidentally kills the female while breeding.
