The fishing cat (Prionailurus viverrinus) is an endangered lynx-sized cat from that ranges from Pakistan to southern Asia. They are said to be extremely ferocious for their size it was reported by (Edward?) Blyth that one he had captured had broken out of its cage into the leopard enclosure next to it and killed the leopard at least twice its size. They eat mostly fish and aquatic animals, tend to live in marshes, and are having a hard time due to habitat destruction. Their claws are very long and can not be fully retracted in the front and their feet are somewhat webbed. They are said to be able to pull their ears so closely to their heads in an effort to keep water out of them that they resemble otters.
