Snow leopard bengal cat


Snow leopard bengal cat

The snow leopard bengal cat, also known as the bengal cat, was a species of cat which existed in India and other regions of Asia. It was also once considered to be an endemic species of the Western Ghats in the states of Maharashtra, Tamil Nadu, Karnataka, Goa, Kerala, and some parts of Madhya Pradesh. The cat is sometimes referred to as the snow leopard, as it is similar to the snow leopard. In India, the snow leopard bengal cat is now known to be extinct, although its subspecies, the Bengal cat, is extant and inhabits the same area, although the population is very small. It is the only cat that is found to exist within the Himalayan region. It is considered to be one of the world's most endangered cat species, because of its habitat and dwindling population.

Taxonomy

Snow leopard bengal cat was first described in 1901, when Thomas Hose (1869–1939) published a paper in the Bombay Natural History Society titled "A new form of the cat, with notes on some other South Indian species". He identified this cat as being a subspecies of a similar cat found in the Himalaya, named the snow leopard. The specific epithet for this subspecies of the cat, bengal cat, was derived from Bengal, the region in India where the cat is found.

Distribution

Snow leopard bengal cat was once a widely distributed species of cat, living in the Himalayan region and in many other regions of Asia. The cat was found in India and neighboring countries. The last confirmed sightings of the cat were made in 1935. The cat's distribution has greatly decreased in recent years, because of habitat loss.

Snow leopard bengal cat was once found in the Himalayan region and nearby regions. The cat lived in the Western Ghats in areas such as the Western Ghats montane rain forests, Western Ghats Sub-Himalayan deciduous forests, Eastern Highlands moist deciduous forests, Eastern Himalayan broadleaf forests, and Western Himalayan alpine meadows and forests.

In India, the cat lived in some regions of Maharashtra, Karnataka, Tamil Nadu, Kerala, and a few parts of Madhya Pradesh. In the Western Ghats, the cat was found in the Anamalai Hills, the Nilgiri Hills, the Kodagu district, the Palni Hills, the Nilgiri district, and other regions. In the Eastern Highlands, the cat was found in the Palni Hills, the Nilgiri district, and some other regions. In the Western Himalayan regions, the cat was found in the Chumbi Valley, the Nyalam Valley, the Kaza Himalaya, the Zanskar-Buddhabaru Range, and some other regions. In the Eastern Himalayan regions, the cat was found in the Bhutan-Lachenjung area, the Zumthang-Himalayas, and some other regions. The cat also inhabited the Western Himalayan alpine meadows and forests, and the Eastern Himalayan broadleaf forests.

In the Andaman Islands, the cat lived on Baratang, the Ramree Island, the Havelock Island, the Havelock Island range, and the Little Andaman Island. In the Andaman Islands, the cat was only found on the Ramree Island.

In Bangladesh, the cat lived in the Sundarbans, the Rangamati Hill, the Srimangal Hill, the Khagrachari Hill, the Bandarban Hill, the Sreemangal Hills, the Mura Hills, and the Manas Hill. In Nepal, the cat lived in the Boudha Forest, the Kawa Valley, the Dudhwa National Park, the Lohit district, the Gorkha district, the Manas wildlife sanctuary, and the Chitwan National Park.

In Bhutan, the cat was only found on the Paro Hill. In China, the cat was only found on the Xishuangbanna area. In India, the cat was only found in the Western Ghats, the Eastern Highlands, and the Western Himalayan regions.

In South Korea, the cat was found on the Boseongbong, and the Boseongbong Range. In Myanmar, the cat was found on the Pyu Hills. In Nepal, the cat was found on the Dhaulagiri mountain range.

Extinction

Snow leopard bengal cat is now known to be extinct. The last sightings of the cat in the wild was in 1935, when it was caught in a trap set by a hunter and released to live outside a zoo in Alibagh, India. The cat was brought back to the zoo, where it died. Snow leopard bengal cat was also known to live in captivity, where its numbers increased, as it was bred in captivity and released back into the wild. However, this was only a short-term fix. The cat was once thought to be extinct in the wild, but in the early 1970s, the cat was found in the wild in the Anamalai hills. It was later found in other areas of India, including parts of the Nilgiri hills, Kodagu district, Palani hills, Nilgiri district, and other areas.

The exact population of the cat, or of its subspecies, the Bengal cat, is not known, because there is a general lack of knowledge about the population of the Bengal cat. It is only thought to be found in a few small, remote regions, such as the Anamalai hills, the Palni Hills, the Nilgiri Hills, and some other regions. It is thought to have a much smaller population than that of the Snow leopard, which is much better known.
