Possible new records of fishing cat_ (Prionailurus viverrinus) _from Peninsular Malaysia
2004  Full Book

There are a few records of fishing cats from Peninsular Malaysia (Swinhoe 1982 in Melisch 1995, Van Bree and Mohd. Khan 1992), but the origin of these specimens is not clear (Van Bree and Mohd. Khan 1992). In this article, we present evidence for the first possible record of fishing cats from the wild in Peninsular Malaysia. If the species occurs in Peninsular Malaysia, it does so at an extremely low density as there are no confirmed records.
