Golden cats recorded for first time in Tanzania

A team led by Francesco Rovero recorded the first confirmed Golden Cat sightings in Tanzania. There have been a number of purported sighting records of this species in the country, but never a photo, so this is very exciting. The video of the mother and young is pretty cool. The record came from Minziro Forest in the far north-west of the country, bordering Uganda, and is part of the Congolese Forest biome. We had a team camera trap the area about 10 years ago, but we were using the old film cameras at the time and didn’t get anything nearly as exciting.
