For this year's #inktober, I'm #drawing a random #wildcat a day. This second set of furry felines includes an #asianleopardcat, a #fishingcat, a #flatheadedcat, and a playful #baycat. Poses strongly inspired by Google image search. #cat #art

Stop hiding behind that grass! Flat-headed cats are very aquatic, and spend their nights hunting fish, frogs, and reptiles in and along rivers. Like some other small cats, it was originally placed in the genus Felis, but is now considered one of the five species in Prionailurus. ⠀

Video by @joelsartore | Flat-headed cats have evolved to be exceptional fishers. Their partially webbed toes are perfect for navigating through water and their backward facing teeth make catching slippery prey much easier. They’ve been known to collect fish from rivers and carry them far away from the shore so they can’t escape back into the water. This cat is very rarely seen in the wild, so there’s still a lot to be learned about its behavior. They are reported to be solitary creatures and have been heard making vocalizations similar to those of a domestic cat, like meowing and purring.
The flat-headed cat is endangered, with only 2,500 individuals left in the wild. They’re threatened by wetland and forest degradation due to human settlement, development of palm oil plantations and excessive hunting and fishing. Only a handful of these cats are currently under human care, and just three litters have been reported in captivity.

#BIGCAT SPECIES SPOTLIGHT: flat-headed cat part 2/3
.
The name “fishing #cat” actually fits the flat-headed cat better than it fits the actual fishing cat species! This is because the fishing cat only has partial webbing between their toes, while the flat-headed cat is semi-aquatic and has much more webbing. Flat-headed cats also boast teeth that face BACKWARDS! Their special backward-facing teeth help to keep the slippery prey (fish, frogs, and even crustaceans) from slipping out of their mouths. These two features make flat-headed cats the true holders of the “fishing cat” name. This unique species has more distinct features such a flat, elongated head, small ears, short tail, and unusually short legs compared to the length of its body.
Alongside those notably unconventional characteristics, the flat-headed cat has also a brownish-rust colored head and stocky, brown body, but their weight only ranges from 3.3-6lb! Their coat color, along with their distinct adaptations that aid them with catching their special prey, allow them to live near riverbanks and in the marshy, swampy forests of the Malay Peninsula and Indonesian islands #Borneo and #Sumatra.

#BIGCAT SPECIES SPOTLIGHT: flat-headed cat part 1/3
📷 by Maxime Thué

In my last spotlight on fishing #cats (#Prionailurus viverrinus), we learned that #cheetahs (#Acinonyx jubatus) aren’t the only big #cat with semi-retractable claws, and that fishing cats also have them! Well, meet the #flatheadedcat (Prionailurus planiceps), another species in the #felidae family with semi-retractable claws, that inhabits Southeast #Asia.
