A Very Brief History

The first Bengal felines are a half and half of the Asian Leopard Cat and residential felines.

The tri-shading is the thing that can give spotted Bengals “rosettes” – where every individual spot has a layout of a darker shading, giving a seem to be like that of a Jaguar, for instance.

Additionally in a similar manner as most dark-striped felines, Bengals have a reasonable “M” on the temple

Bengals are solid and nimble felines and ought to be thin and athletic. The back legs are somewhat longer than the front ones, which give a curve to the back when remaining in a specific position.

Bengal Behavior

Alright, we let it out! Bengals are not your laid-back lap feline! They are frequently very shrewd and can be a modest bunch, they are not for the unpracticed or apprehensive feline proprietor!
