Abstract

This paper is about the variation in body size and cranial dimensions in natural population of the Sardinian wildcat. We have recorded biometric measures of 40 wildcats (24 male and 16 female) collected or captured in different localities of Sardinia. Craniometrical measures were taken on seven of these cats. The results obtained in this study indicate that the Sardinian wildcat is smaller than the European (Felis silvestris silvestris) and the African (Felis silvestris libyca) wildcat. Cranial index and morphological aspect confirmed that Sardinian wildcats are similar to domestic cats (Felis silvestris catus).
