Profelis aurata, This African species ranges through a variety of habitats from the dry savanna grasslands to the equatorial rainforest. This nocturnal carnivore feeds on many small invertebrates such as birds, rodents, hares and small monkeys. The African golden cat is very similar in appearance to the Asian golden cat, Felis temminicki. However, taxonomists now agree that these two species are only distantly related and have classified them in to two distinct genera. Their similarity, therefore, is most likely the result of convergent evolution in similar habitats and niches.
