The jungle cat, Felis chaus, is among the commonest small wild cats in southeast Asia. Vereschagin (1959) noted that the jungle cat’s use of the semi-arid plains of Azerbaijan elevated with the development of an area irrigation system and decreased with its abandonment. One other concern to be addressed is the battle between farmers and the jungle cat principally due to poultry predation.
In areas the place the jungle cat takes poultry, it is persecuted by people and infrequently poisoned. Jungle cats have relatively short tails, about 1/3 of their complete body size, which have a number of dark rings along its length and a black tip.
Jungle cats can do effectively in cultivated landscapes (especially those who lead to increased numbers of rodents) and artificial wetlands. Also Blanford identified the lynx-like appearance of cat skins and skulls from the plains round Yarkand and Kashgar when he described Felis Shawiana in 1876.
They are the biggest cats in Central America with weight reaching up to 200 kilos. Vocalizations made by the Jungle cat are meowing, chirping, purring, growling, gurgling, hissing, and barking. These cats are reliant on healthy wetland systems so the ongoing reclamation and destruction of pure wetlands poses a serious risk to the species.
Given their current evolutionary history, broad distribution, vagile nature, and comparatively comparable ecologies, we expected that leopard cats and jungle cats would have related patterns of genetic variation across the Indian subcontinent.
