One of the first handheld photos of a living African golden cat

This is the one of three of the first handheld photographs taken of a wild, living African golden cat in 2003 by Panthera Lion Program Survey Coordinator, Phil Henschel.

Camera traps set by Phil took the first known image of a wild, living African golden cat in 2002.

Recently, cameras set by Panthera Kaplan scholar Laila Bahaa-el-din in Gabon filmed the first video footage of a wild African golden cat. See the first video footage of a wild African golden cat and get more information about this elusive wild cat at bit.ly/pNCOoz.
