The clouded leopard (neofelis diardii) is the biggest feline predator in Borneo. However, it is nowhere as big as a dog. It is rarely ever seen on the ground as it prefers to stay on trees. Thus, their tail is as long as their body for balance, and their canines are 2 inches long so they can get a good grip on their prey as they drag them up into the trees (considering the size of their skull, they are as close to being the modern-day smilodon).

I think I shall name this one Olumis. She is wearing the traditional garb from Tambunan.
