​Wildlife experts have discovered an unusual animal that they believe could be a new species. The animal was found on the French island of Corsica. The experts showed reporters a "cat-fox" that they had captured in the mountains of Corsica. The experts said they found a group of sixteen cat-foxes in a remote area of Corsica. The captured cat-fox measured nearly 90 centimeters in length from head to tail. The creature has very wide ears, short whiskers and a thick coat. It also has stripes on its front legs. Gilles Simeoni, a local government official, thanked the wildlife team for finding the cat-fox. He said: "It's a wonderful discovery." He added that Corsica was a "paradise of animal and plant biodiversity".

野生动物专家发现了一种不寻常的动物,他们认为这可能是一种新物种。这种动物是在法国科西嘉岛上发现的。专家们向记者展示了他们在科西嘉岛山区捕获的一只“猫狐”。专家说,他们在科西嘉岛的偏远地区发现了16只猫狐。被捕获的猫狐从头到尾长近90厘米。这种生物的耳朵很宽,胡须很短,皮毛很厚。它的前腿上也有条纹。当地政府官员GillesSimeoni感谢野生动物团队找到了这只猫。他说:“这是一个奇妙的发现。”他补充说科西嘉岛是“动植物生物多样性的天堂”。

The cat-fox has been talked about by local people in Corsica for decades. It had become a mythical creature with farmers, who tell stories about seeing it. Corsicans are now happy and proud that their island is home to a new species of animal. Scientists believe that the cat comes from a little-known species that could have originated in Africa and the Middle East thousands of years ago. It is largely a nocturnal animal. One scientist said the cat-fox could have been brought to Corsica as far back as 6500BC. Another scientist said: "By looking at its DNA, we could tell it apart from the European wildcat. It's close to the African forest cat, but its exact identity is still to be determined."

几十年来,科西嘉岛的当地人一直在谈论猫狐。它已经成为一种神话般的动物,农民们讲述着看到它的故事。科西嘉岛上有一种新的动物,科西嘉人现在感到高兴和自豪。科学家们相信这只猫来自一种鲜为人知的物种,这种物种可能起源于数千年前的非洲和中东。它主要是夜间活动的动物。一位科学家说,猫狐可能被带到科西嘉岛,最远可追溯到公元前6500年。另一位科学家说:“通过观察它的DNA,我们可以把它与欧洲野猫区别开来。它与非洲森林猫很接近,但其确切身份仍有待确定。”
