Taiwan | Thought to be extinct, Formosan clouded leopard reportedly sighted in wilderness area

This week news broke that a Formosan clouded leopard (Neofelis nebulosa brachyura) was spotted by rangers in a remote part of Taiwan. Officially declared extinct in 2013 after a years-long project to capture one on camera failed, community rangers now say that they saw the creatures twice last year while exploring locations in southeastern Taiwan.


The predator is a subspecies of clouded leopard only found on the island of Taiwan.
