Flat Headed Cat Description
  Slightly smaller than a domestic cat, the Flat- headed Cat lives around rivers, lakes, swamps, and canals. A semiaquatic preditor of fish, it also takes shrimp, frogs, rodents, and small birds. Its toes are partiallly webbed and the claws cannot be retracted fullly, and its upper premolers are large and sharp, helping it to grip slippery prey.
The most outstanding feature of this cat, however, is its long and narrow skull with a flattened forehead and small, low set ears. Its coat is dark brown, tinged silver.
