Cats are able to sleep almost anywhere. The following pictures show various species of sleeping cats, photographed around the world.

The origin of the domestic cat is described on the page Animals: Animals as servants of Man, whereas the leopard (Panthera pardus) is dealt with on the page Animals: The spotted killer.

Twelve subspecies of the bobcat (Lynx rufus) are recognized, widely distributed across North America, from southern Canada south to central Mexico. This solitary cat inhabits various habitats, such as forests, grasslands, swamps, and semi-desert, as well as some suburban areas. Despite this adaptability, it is declining over much of its area, due to competition with the successful coyote (Canis latrans) and feral domestic dogs.

The Gibraltar Rock, southern Spain, is home to a population of about 300 Barbary macaques (Macaca sylvanus), divided into five troops. This species, which is native to the Atlas Mountains of Morocco, was possibly introduced to the rock by the Moors.

On my travels around the world, I have often encountered sleeping dogs. Below, a selection of pictures are shown. The origin of the domestic dog is dealt with on the page Animals: Animals as servants of Man.

 

The common stray dogs of Taiwan, called Taiwan dogs, or sometimes Takasago dogs, are a result of indigenous Formosan hunting dogs, interbreeding with imported dog types. Taiwan dogs are usually black or brown, or a mixture of the two.

A tiny population of the globally threatened black rhinoceros (Diceros bicornis) is lingering in the Ngorongoro Crater, northern Tanzania. Here, they are closely guarded by rangers against poachers, who sell rhino horns to middle men, who in turn export them to China, where they are used as an ingredient in traditional medicine.

Elephant seals derive their name from their great size, and also from the male’s large, inflatable proboscis, with which he makes loud roaring noises, especially during the mating season. While moulting, northern elephant seals (Mirounga angustirostris) spend a lot of time sleeping on their moulting site.

Formerly, these large seals were hunted extensively for their blubber, from which oil was made. By 1869, they had almost been extirpated, and around 1890 only one group, comprising about 100 animals, was known to exist. However, the elephant seal managed to survive, and since the early 20th century it has been protected by law in Mexico and the United States. Subsequently, it has now recovered, counting more than 200,000 individuals. Today, it occurs in scattered colonies along the Pacific Coast, from Baja California to the Gulf of Alaska and the Aleutian Islands.

Formerly, the giant panda (Ailuropoda melanoleuca) was considered closely related to the red panda (Ailurus fulgens), lumped in the family Ailuridae. However, DNA studies have revealed that, in fact, the giant panda belongs to the bear family (Ursidae), and is not closely related to the red panda, which is now the sole member of Ailuridae. Despite being a carnivore, the diet of the giant panda is more than 99% bamboo stems and leaves, supplemented by other grasses, wild tubers, birds, rodents, and carrion.

Unlike other bears, giant pandas do not have round pupils, but vertical slits, like cats. This gave rise to the generic name Ailuropoda, from the Greek ailouros (‘cat’) and pous (‘foot’), and also to the Chinese name 大熊猫 (‘big bear-cat’).

Once widespread throughout southern China, and as far north as Beijing and south into Southeast Asia, the giant panda is now confined to the Chinese provinces Sichuan, Shaanxi, and Gansu. Today, it is highly endangered, counting only about 2,000 individuals in the wild. An increase in available habitat provides support for the contention that its numbers are increasing. Forest protection and reforestation measures have supported an 11.8% increase in panda-occupied habitat, and a 6.3% increase in unoccupied, but suitable habitat. Although the panda population is currently increasing, climate change is predicted to eliminate more than 35% of its bamboo habitat in the next 80 years, and thus the population is projected to decline.

The greenshank (Tringa nebularia) is a common breeding bird in the northern subarctic zone, from northern Scotland and Scandinavia across the Siberian taiga to Chukotka and the Kamchatka Peninsula. It is migratory, spending the winter in Africa, southern Asia and Australia. It forms a superspecies together with the greater yellowlegs (T. melanoleuca) of North America and the spotted redshank (T. erythropus), which breeds in northern Scandinavia and Siberia.

There are two widely separated populations of the brown, or Afro-Australian, fur seal (Arctocephalus pusillus), the South African, or Cape, fur seal, subspecies pusillus, and the Australian fur seal, subspecies doriferus. The Cape fur seal ranges along the southern coasts of Africa, from Ilha dos Tigres in southern Angola, along the Namibian coast to Algoa Bay in South Africa, while the Australian subspecies lives in south-eastern Australian waters, along the coasts of Tasmania, New South Wales, Victoria, and South Australia, with the largest concentration in the Bass Strait. Their preferred breeding habitats are rocky islands, and pebble or boulder beaches. The population of the Cape fur seal is approximately 2 million, while that of the Australian fur seal is around 120,000. (Source: iucnredlist.org/details/2060/0)

In the south-eastern corner of the huge Caspian Sea, northern Iran, a 70-kilometre-long sand spit, Mian Kaleh, stretches towards the east, hereby creating a large inlet, named Gorgan Bay. In April 1973, my companion Arne Koch Christoffersen and I stayed in this area for two weeks, studying the northbound bird migration. Numerous birds follow the shoreline, concentrating in numbers at this sand spit. Among other migrating species, we observed Eurasian crane (Grus grus), pallid harrier (Circus macrourus), imperial eagle (Aquila heliaca), steppe eagle (A. nipalensis), peregrine (Falco peregrinus), and Egyptian vulture (Neophron percnopterus).
