Who says cat don't like water? One of Denver Zoo's newest animals, a 5-year-old fishing cat named Maliha, just moved into her new home inside Toyota Elephant Passage. She comes to Denver Zoo from Oklahoma City Zoo. Visitors can see her dive for live fish in the Marynelle Philpott Fishing Cat Exhibit once it opens to the public on June 1. As their name suggests, fishing cats love the water and are powerful swimmers. In the wild, they attract fish by lightly tapping the water's surface with a paw to mimic insect movement. They then dive into the water to catch the fish that come near.
