One of three fishing cat kittens is held at the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium on Tuesday, Aug. 16, 2011.

Born on July 29, these three endagered Asian fishing cats are being cared for at the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium by their mother in a secluded den.


In the wild, the nocturnal fishing cat is found in southern Asia in densely vegetated areas near marshes, mangroves, rivers and streams as well as in tropical dry forests.
