A Bornean clouded leopard was captured on camera strolling through a Malaysian forest reserve this week, a rare daytime sighting of the elusive animals in the wild. Found only on the Southeast Asian islands of Borneo and Sumatra, the big cat species is known to zoologists as Neofelis diardi, with just 700 estimated to live in a habitat shrunk by poaching and deforestation. “Seeing it in daytime is nearly unheard of,” said Michael Gordon, who filmed the mother and two cubs cross a road and walk into bush in Deramakot in Malaysia’s Sabah state on Borneo, where camera traps first spotted the cats in 2010. The animal’s habitat has shrunk by a 10th each year over the past two decades, says the World Wildlife Fund, hit by poaching and deforestation for commercial purposes. It feeds on monkeys, small deer, birds and lizards, and is the main predator on Borneo, an island shared by Malaysia, Indonesia and Brunei.
