ABSTRACT
This article reports that a new leopard species has been found in Indonesia. The new species of clouded leopard has been roaming the rain forests on the islands of Borneo and Sumatra in Southeast Asia. Unlike leopards found in Southeast Asia's mainland, the Borneo cat has a double dorsal stripe and distinct spots within its small cloud markings. It has darker fur than that of the mainland species and can grow as large as a small panther.
