Rare Footage of the African Golden Cat
Camera trap footage from the jungles of Uganda has revealed rare images of an African golden cat, as well as providing evidence that the cat behaves contrary to what was previously believed.
Based on the camera trap footage, which was taken in Uganda’s Kibale National Park by the Wildlife Conservation Society and the big cat conservation group Panthera, researchers determined the African golden cat is actually cathemeral, meaning it’s active both at night and during the day.
African golden cats have only rarely been seen by scientists, and not much is known about them.
The newly released camera trap footage adds to a rare collection of images of the African golden cat. The first wild footage of the rare cats was taken in 2011 by Panthera scientists in Gabon.
Interestingly, the researchers used the cologne Calvin Klein Obsession for Men to lure the cat near the camera trap, where it marked the area with its scent. The cologne is frequently used by researchers to attract cats and other wildlife to remote cameras.(Photo : WCS/Panthera)
