Clouded leopards are among the best climbers in the cat family. They can climb upside down and hang from branches with their hind feet.
They have the largest canine teeth relative to body size in the cat family and can open their mouths much wider than other cats. For this reason they are sometimes called the “modern day saber-toothed cat.”
Because of their shy nature, nocturnal tendencies and excellent camouflage, wild clouded leopards are rarely seen by people.
