Clouded leopards are from the cloud forests of Southeast Asia and are one of the most ancient of cat species. But they are neither a true great cat nor a true small cat, because they can’t roar or purr.
I worry about things like this as I don’t know how to find an answer. The question is this: How do such creatures then communicate with one another? I don’t mean face to face, body language will then work. But distances? How does one cat call out to another? Do they make any noise? Do they let out a loud piercing scream from great distances? This information is so incomplete.
I’m off now to do some google work that will likely get me lost and cost the whole day. But I do want to know more about this beautiful creature.
By the way, perhaps it is our definitions that are lacking if this is not a true cat? Maybe that should be revised. Sure looks like a cat to me!
