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.
