Sorry to spoil the fun, but it isn't an unknown species.


Scientists have filmed the extremely secretive bay cat (Catopuma badia) in a new location that is about 64 kilometers (40 miles) outside its currently known distribution range in Borneo. The chestnut-colored cat, also called the Bornean cat, is found only in Borneo and is one of the least known wild cats in the world. It is currently listed as Endangered on the IUCN Red List.

Looks like a house cat on steroids!
If Arnold Schwartzeneger had a cat, this would be it!

Well this is a species weve known about, and yet only captured on film once(?), or a handful of times (?).
This video gives credence to the real possibility of Sasquatch IMO.

If this is a fake it's a very good one...

However if it's not i'm sure, the gait seems feline but the body structure looks equine. My heart wants to believe but my brain says it's fake.

Borneo is in danger of losing all of it's wild species due to palm oil plantations and deforestation.
Avoid buying anything with palm oil if you can help it.
My wife spent her early childhood in the jungle living with the Iban people who her father was a Methodist missionary to.
If she saw the destruction of what was her world in her childhood it would break her heart.
That's the sole reason we never went back to visit.

Gorgeous cat. Likely feeds on the tiny forest deer.

That Male is extremely muscular!

I love cats.

I was going to buy an African Serval cub last year.
But the breeder ended up refunding me due to the cub being very skiddish.
So much so that she wouldnt approach humans and would just hiss and swat at anyone new.
Having small kids around, wouldn't have been a good mix the breeder told me.

As soon as I saw it move, it looked animated to me. It's motions seem to perfectly aligned on an axis, plus the shadows seemed "wrong".

I hear you, Australia looses thousands of acres of flora due to cutting down trees to harvest eucalyptus oil, I have used it but it's just not worth destroying the homes and foliage that those cute little ewoks from Australia (or Koalas in Australian) rely on.

What these fools don't realize is palm trees don't grow overnight, it could take a decade or so for a seedling to reach maturity and that's if they survive erosion from monsoons ( BTW root bound plants help stop erosion) so palm oil is basically a temporary finite commodity.

Camera-trap footage from Kalimantan (Borneo) showing an unidentified species of feline predator.

Researchers from Indonesian and British universities set up the camera. They’re keeping the exact location secret for fear of poachers.

The jungles of Southeast Asia still hold a myriad of surprises.

That's not an unknown cat specie and even the title of the video gives you its name..

it is a bay cat and it was discovered in 1879.

This is purely a clickbait thread. What the hell? I don't come on ATS to get baited into pointless threads.


The "They’re keeping the exact location secret for fear of poachers. " is even more cringy and exactly what I would expect on some crappy website filled with ads..

Wonder if they're related somewhere down the line.

Maybe these Borneo cats were brought to Madagascar at some point, to control some kind of pest during colonisation, but instead crossbred with the native mongoose populations to give us Fossa (arguably a lot more dangerous than anything these cats could take down).

Perhaps Madagascar's Fossa is a hybrid of Borneo's Bay Cat and something else that wasn't able to outlast the aggression of the offspring.

I don't know if this is even biologically possible, but it's a thought.

It's really amazing how little we know of our own planet. Over 86% unknown

Very cool!

I'm glad they're keeping the location secret.

If there is such a thing.

peace

Then ypur heart is smarter than your head. You think that footage of a known species (in spite of the misleading thread title) is fake? Why the hell would anybody fake footage of an already known species of cat? There is no reason to do so, and no reason to believe this is fake.

That's Bigfoot's house cat.

Now we know... Bigfoot is real, and he likes kitties.

Looks like Fossa of Madagascar with the face of a cheetah or something.

Bay Cat
thats what thought ! Fossa


but a Fossa is in its own Category
and more related to the Moongoose..

a mixture , of a Big Cat Jag or a leopard with a Fossa ?

the Tail looks just like a Fossa's

as you can see


and the Color is pretty close ,

So had Dr Moreau had been to Borneo?
in the past decade lol

or was the Bay cat in Madagascar at one time
