  1. The Fishing Cat lives along rivers, streams and mangroveswamps. It is well adapted to this habitat, being an eager and skilled swimmer.

Biologist George Schaller likened the Takin to a ‘bee-stung moose’, because of the swollen appearance of its face. It is covered with a thick golden wool which turns black at the underbelly.
