Like the mainland clouded leopard, the Bornean Clouded Leopard prefers tropical and subtropical forests for its habitat. It is evolutionarily adapted to survive best in such an environment.

However, the cat's secretive nature makes it difficult to validate these figures as being entirely accurate!
