BBC programme on Big Cats highlights Lanka's little wonder in rare footage of smallest cat in the world


FeaturesA BBC programme on Big Cats has highlighted the lesser known world of the smallest cat on the planet, a species which is extremeley rare reportedly found only in the forests of Sri Lanka and India. In footage captured while filming a documentary about its much larger relatives, the programme shows footaged of the spotted cat in Sri Lanka. The miniature cat is said to weigh a little over a kilogram and could comfortably snuggle into the palm of a hand when fully grown. However, according to reports the cat is is 200 times lighter than a lion - but is equally predatory when it comes to the search for food. Although it looks very similar to a family pet, this one is different from domestic moggies and 'what it lacks in size it makes up for in daring', as it doesn't mind getting a little wet, the documentary claimed.
