Rusty-Spotted Cat

Although the rusty-spotted cat doesn’t fare well in captivity and only a few are held in zoos, observations from the West Berlin Zoo and Frankfurt Zoo have helped provide information about this species.

The rusty-spotted cat does not fare well in captivity and only a few are held in zoos outside its natural distribution.

The West Berlin Zoo and Frankfurt Zoo, both located in Germany, have been crucial to rusty-spotted cat observation and conservation. The zoos have provided information on the rusty-spotted cat’s lifespan and longevity, mating system, paternal care, nesting preference, development and growth, aggression, behavior, and diet.
