Clouded Leopard Description
  The smallest of the big cats, the Clouded Leopard derives its name from the "cloudy," black- bordered, dark patches on its tawny, gray, or silver coat. Its forhead and legs is spotted, and the tail banded.
Little is known about this eclusive cat, but it is believed to be mainly arboreal( resembling a tree), avoiding danger, resting, and stalking prey, from overhead branches.
Its climbing skill rivals that of many small cats:it runs down trees head first or moves about among horizontal branches with its back to the ground.
It is threatened by habitat loss and hunted excessively.
