Rusty-spotted cats are solitary, found in forests and human-dominated areas. They are terrestrial but show arboreal behavior, hunting at night and resting in trees or logs during the day.
Rusty-spotted cats are carnivores, feeding on small rodents, frogs, lizards, birds, and amphibians. They can even eat dead prey. Surprisingly, they can kill prey three times their size.
The rusty-spotted cat is endangered in India and can be found in the Indian subcontinent. While the price of a rusty-spotted cat can range from $1500 to $20000, it is not recommended to keep them as pets due to their unsuitability for captivity.
