Geoffroy’s cat

It was cloudy and windy but that didn’t stop me from going mad with the camera again at Colchester Zoo with John, Natasha and Jason. Most of the shots were at silly ISO and stupidly slow shutter speeds (photography nerds will know what I’m talking about). The rain came earlier than expected, but Colchester Zoo is 60 – 70% under cover so my fur didn’t get too wet!

I hope you like the picture of this lovely little cat who looks a lot like a domestic cat and is a similar size.  In fact, it is known as the Geoffroy’s cat and is native to the southern and central regions of South America.  Unfortunately its another one that is considered to be at ‘near threatened’ status by the IUCN (International Union for the Conservation of Nature) because of concern over land-use changes in the regions where it lives.
