Sunday's Nature News, 3/18/2007

Time for our weekly highlight of the top non-birding nature news story of the week. Frankly, we've been too busy birding and doing other stuff to give this our full attention this week.

But Lisa found this story from Science Daily: scientists have determined, through genetic research, that the Clouded Leopard found on the Indonesian islands of Sumatra and Borneo is an entirely distinct species of cat, seperate from those found in mainland Southeast Asia.

An entirely new species of cat. That doesn't happen every day. Until next week...
