The Bengal cat is a domesticated cat breed created
from hybrids of domestic cats , especially the spotted
with the Asian leopard cat (Prionailurus bengalensis).
The breed name comes from the leopard cat's taxonomic name.
Bengals have a wild appearance; their golden shimmer comes from their leopard cat ancestry, and their coats may show spots, rosettes, arrowhead markings, or marbling. They are an energetic breed which needs much exercise and play.
