First Footage of Sunda Clouded Leopard Scent Marking

The footage below was originally posted on the Bornean Clouded Leopard Programme site.  Anyone who takes care of a domestic cat will be able to see similarities in the actions.

The July edition of BBC Wildlife magazine carries a feature on clouded leopards and it mentions there is disagreement over whether the two types of clouded leopards (from Borneo and Sumatra) are big cats.  Based on size and genetics, clouded leopards are considered big cats but their rigid hyoid bones (in the larnyx) means some believe they are not big cats.
