Jungle Cat Nexon Game

Jungle Cat is a type of Friend that appeared in the original Kemono Friends mobile game. Her redesign first appeared in Volume 2


Jungle Cat has sandy tan hair, with darker markings on the back, her tufted ears, and the bottoms of her pigtails, which are tied with pink hairbands. She has five circular and striped markings on the front of her hair, and most of her side bangs which have protruding strands to represent whiskers are white. Her animal tail is white and tan, with darker stripes and tip, and it has a pink bow tied around the end. Her eyes are yellow.

She has a ruffled white blouse with a pink ribbon and a medium greyish tan shoulderless section, with large but short sleeves that cover the tops of her long tan gloves which have some spots and stripes at the top. Over this she wears a fluffy white scarf. Her skirt is the same tan shade, with darker lacing threaded through pink holes. She wears a tan belt and the skirt has a frilly white layer underneath. Her thigh high socks are also tan, with white frills at the top and a couple of dark spots and stripes. Her shoes are the same colour as her skirt and have small pink buttons.

The old design is similar, though her colours appear slightly darker. Her eyes are the same dark tan colour featured on her hair, only the tips of her side bangs are pink, and her tail is less striped. Her skirt appears a more greyish colour and has a pink belt, and she has no white blouse, as well as the shirt having a dark collar and cuffs. Her gloves only go down to her wrists and are completely dark. Her scarf appears smoother and is tipped with a tan colour.

In Real Life

The jungle cat's head-and-body length is typically between 59 and 76 cm. This cat stands nearly 36 cm at shoulder and weighs 2 to 16 kg. The face is long and narrow, with a white muzzle. The large, pointed ears, 4.5 to 8 cm in length and reddish brown on the back, are set close together; a small tuft of black hairs, nearly 15 mm long, emerges from the tip of both ears. The eyes have yellow irides and elliptical pupils; white lines can be seen around the eye. Dark lines run from the corner of the eyes down the sides of the nose and a dark patch marks the nose.

The coat, sandy, reddish brown or grey, is uniformly coloured and lacks spots. Dark-tipped hairs cover the body, giving the cat a speckled appearance. The belly is generally lighter than the rest of the body and the throat is pale. The fur is denser on the back compared to the underparts. 

It occurs in the Middle East, the Indian subcontinent, central and Southeast Asia, Sri Lanka and in southern China. The jungle cat inhabits places with adequate water and dense vegetation, such as swamps, wetlands, littoraland riparian areas, grasslands and shrub. It is common in agricultural lands, such as fields of bean and sugarcane, across its range, and has often been sighted near human settlements. As reeds and tall grasses are typical of its habitat.

The jungle cat is typically diurnal and hunts throughout the day. Its activity tends to decrease during the hot noon hours. It rests in burrows, grass thickets and scrubs. It often sunbathes on winter days. They are solitary in nature; territories are maintained by urine sprayingand scent marking; some males have been observed rubbing their cheeks on objects to mark them.

Primarily a carnivore, the jungle cat prefers small mammals such as gerbils, hares and rodents. It also hunts birds, fish, frogs, insects and small snakes. The jungle cat hunts by stalking its prey, followed by a sprint or a leap; the sharp ears help in pinpointing the location of prey.
