The Fishing Cat (Prionailurus viverrinus) is a cat native to South & Southeast Asia. Due to their population being destroyed, the IUCN has declared them an endangered species. It could also be due to the exploitation of fish in their habitat, which as you could guess from their name, is a common prey for this Felidae. Birds, insects, small rodents, reptiles and amphibians are also eaten, but not as often as fish. These cats mate any time of the year, but mostly around January and February.. Which would be right now! Their two or three kittens won’t be fully matured for another six months.
