Threatened species of Catopuma badia

Other Names:
Threatened species of Bay cat
Threatened species of Bornean Bay cat

The lack of knowledge is a problem in identifying threats to Catopuma badia. Probably deforestation is its principle threat. There is a demand for its collection or skin due to its rarity.


The bay cat has long been considered rare and possibly endangered. Trappers who captured a bay cat in 1992 were apparently aware of its rarity and value to animal dealers.

Catopuma badia is considered "Vulnerable" by the IUCN. CITES lists the species as "Appendix 2".
