An extension to my former thread 'I was back' , a business trip brought me back to Bangkok and took the opportunity to have a short (2 nights) visit to Khao Yai. Again I was able to take some interesting pictures which I would like to share with you.

What's the cat? Marbled cat? And where did you see that?

At the campsite one of the staff has brought in a domestic cat to live there, even though pets are banned in national parks. First time I saw it in pitch black I thought I'd stumbled upon a marbled cat or fishing cat.

No, it is a Leopard Cat (Prionailurus bengalensis) . It's native to this area, but rarely seen. I was incredibly lucky to see it and to catch it with my camera :-)

It was right next to the Observation Tower at Nong Phak Chi.
