The Sunda Clouded Leopard
Let’s be honest, the chances of catching a glimpse of the rare Sunda Clouded Leopard in the wild are pretty slim, even for a native. But that’s what makes it all the more rewarding when you do spot it. Both nocturnal and notoriously elusive, it was only recognized as a unique species of its own back in 2006. Despite its name, the cloud-spotted feline is actually of a separate genus to leopards and other cat species, and is more likely to be a wildcat. Some say it was once spotted in the hilly rainforests of the Belait district, as well as near Sungai Ingei Forest.
