World's smallest kittens spotted in Rajasthan

Two kittens belonging to the Rusty-spotted cat family, one of the smallest of the species, were recently spotted at a soyabean field near Arnod town in Pratapgarh district.
The villagers who discovered the kittens alerted the forest department as they were confused how `panther cubs' could be too small. The officials who were ecstatic to spot the kittens, confirmed they belong to one of smallest variety of cats. The Rusty-spotted cat is found only in India and Sri Lanka and it has been listed as “vulnerable“ by International Union for Conservation of Nature in 2002.
