A leopard cat with its kittens camera trapped in Annapurna Conservation Area, Nepal

On 27 May 2018, a leopard cat Prionailurus bengalensis was captured with its two
kittens in a camera trap at 09:53 h in Ghandruk, Annapurna Conservation Area ACA,
Nepal. The precise location was in Annapurna Rural Municipality, Ward number 11. In
Nepal, the breeding status of leopard cats is little known. This is the first camera trap
record of a leopard cat with kittens in ACA and probably in Nepal. The cat was captured
at an altitude of 2,228 m (28°25.076' N/83°49.480' E) in a mixed broadleaf forest.
