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.
