A Voice For The Wild Cats of the World
Black-footed Cats On The Move
February 2, 2012Posted by on
These small cats have immense home ranges, and about 70% of the night is spent hunting. They move between 4.5 and 16 km, averaging 8.5 km per night. These distances represent odometer readings of the tracking vehicle, while 16 km moved by the truck would more realistically correspond to more than 30 km moved by the cat
zig-zagging between bushes and termite mounds.
