Tonight I will trek out to see if I can find any Scottish Wildcats in the forest. Sightings are rare these days as the Cat is critically endangered. It is the last large mammal predator in the wild in the UK and its conservation and study is critical to its survival.
This chart maps the pelt marking helping one to identify whether a creature is a true Wildcat, hybrid or domestic cat. It also shows how the cat has changed through domestication.
