Ecology

Taiwanese wildcats are carnivorous animals that feed on small mammals, amphibians, fish and insects. The breeding form is embryonic, and 1-3 heads can be laid at one time. Newborn children live with their parents. About 6 months after birth, they will be about the same size as their parents and will begin to become independent. Sexual maturity also falls at the same time, and from this time on, you will start to act alone.

Endangered species

The number of Taiwanese wildcats is originally small. The estimated population is only around 500-1000 and may be extinct. Like the Tsushima leopard cat and the Iriomote leopard cat, their habitat is limited and they are always at risk of extinction. Due to the progress of modernization and land development in Taiwan, the habitat of Taiwanese wildcats may decrease. Therefore, the biggest threat to Taiwan wildcats is humans. It is known that there are many deaths due to hunting, land development, deforestation, traffic accidents, etc.
