    The highly elusive bay cat was caught on camera by ecologists in Borneo in an area in an area in which survival is thought to be very difficult.

    Ecologists in Borneo have captured images of the elusive bay cat in a heavily logged forest--an indication that threatened species can survive amidst intense human activity. Animals were not typically expected to succeed in such an area but the cameras caught the most images ever of the bay cat along with four other wild cat species.  I feel like Gloria Gayner should be playing the background.  They say this “hidden camera” technique works well in such studies because it captures species that are very good at avoiding scientists in the field.
