The cat was at a distance and was shot from a vehicle. Actually one is not allowed to get out of the vehicle except in a couple of rest areas.
The jungle cat (Felis chaus) is a medium-sized cat native to Asia from southern China in the east through Southeast and Central Asia to the Nile Valley in the west. It has a small tuft on the ears, a comparatively short tail, and a distinct spinal crest. Because of its long legs, short tail and tuft on the ears, the jungle cat resembles a small lynx. Jungle cats are solitary in nature. More details
