The Marbled Cat (Pardofelis marmorata) is a small wildcat that can be found in Southeast Asia in relatively small population densities, which means that it is listed as vulnerable by the IUCN. Its body is similar in size to a domestic cat (weighing up to 11 lbs.), but its tail is usually just as long or longer than its body (22 inches, in some cases). Their markings resemble those of the clouded leopard, which led scientists to believe that it was closely related to the pantherines (big cats). Genetic analysis has shown, however, that its closest relatives are the Asian Golden Cat and the Bay Cat, both of whose lines diverged from the pantherines 9.4 million years ago. The Marbled Cat has large paws and large canine teeth relative to its body size, which allow it catch its preferred arboreal prey of birds and squirrels, although it will also add other rodents and reptiles to its diet. One of the biggest threats to the Marbled Cats is careless and indiscriminate snares that people in its territory set, although some deliberately set out to trap them because their skin, meat and bones are highly prized in the illegal trading of Asian wildlife.
