WILDLIFE -- Elusive Feline: Tsushima Leopard Cat

The Tsushima leopard cat is one of the most endangered animals in Japan. Only 60 centimeters long and weighing about four kilograms, it lives exclusively on Tsushima Island in southern Japan. Automatic HD cameras were set up at locations where these cats were known to show up. Running 24 hours a day, the cameras recorded the habits of these rarely seen animals over one year. Viewers experience a leopard cat catching its rodent prey in the middle of the night, another stalking waterfowl in wetlands, even a parent and cub playing together in a rice field. The hitherto unknown life of the very rare Tsushima leopard cat is vividly shown here.
