Class= Resembles the big cats in it's posture when resting, though the fact that it purrs but can not roar relates it closer to the small cats. It is not closely related to the leopard, nor, in fact, to any other big cat.

Little is known of the clouded leopards history. Can be traced back about 7 million years ago when they branched off from the small cat groups.
