A CAT-like creature photographed by camera traps in East Kalimantan National Park on Borneo island is likely to be a new species of carnivore, the World Wildlife Fund said yesterday.
If confirmed, the animal would be the first new carnivore species discovered on the island in a century since the Borneo ferret-badger was discovered in 1895.
Cameras set up to photograph wildlife in Kayan Mentarang National Park on the Indonesian side of Borneo island have twice captured images of an animal with dark red fur and a long, bushy tail, said WWF biologist Stephan Wulffraat.
"We have consulted several Bornean wildlife experts. Some thought it looked like a lemur, but most were convinced it was a new species of carnivore," Mr Wulffraat said.
