New Species Of Great Cat Found 51

highwaytohell writes "Scientists have found a new species of leopard on Borneo and Sumatra. The Bornean Clouded Leopard or Neofelis Diardi was originally thought to be similar to the mainland Clouded Leopard. However, Dr Stephen O'Brien, Head of the Laboratory of Genomic Diversity, US National Cancer Institute says, "Genetic research results clearly indicate that the clouded leopards of Borneo should be considered a separate species, DNA tests highlighted around 40 differences between the two species." The news comes just a few weeks after a WWF report showed that scientists had identified at least 52 new species of animals and plants over the past year on Borneo."
