Leopard cat makes surprise appearance on video in E China

Staff of Guanshan National Nature Reserve in east China's Jiangxi Province came across a leopard cat while checking footage of infrared cameras installed at the reserve.

The recordings were made at night in a broad-leaved forest at an altitude of over 1,000 meters. The leopard cat walked to the infrared camera, took a look, and then hurried away.

Leopard cats, commonly known as copper coin cats, usually inhabit woodland, brushwood and barren hills.
