Previously, the species was known as the Bornean clouded leopard.
The Sunda clouded leopard is a medium-sized wild cat found in Borneo and Sumatra. The habits of the Sunda clouded leopard are largely unknown because of the animal's secretive nature. It is assumed that it is generally a solitary creature. It hunts mainly on the ground and uses its climbing skills to hide from dangers.
Its coat is marked with irregularly-shaped, dark-edged ovals which are said to be shaped like clouds, hence its common name.
