INFO ABOUT THE ANIMAL:

Name: Pallas's Cat (Otocolobus manul)
Location: Asia: from Caspian sea to Mongolia
Size: 60 cm long body and 30 cm long tail weight: 3,4 – 5 Kg
Diet: pikas, rodents, birds
Conservation status: Near Threatened
Interesting facts: robust body, short legs, long whiskers and very long thick fur are typical for manuls | Pallas’s cats are nocturnal predators | Manuls can be found on deserts, steppe climate and mountains between heights of 1,000 and 4,000 metres | mother gives birth to 2-6 kittens. They are independent after only two months! | they were hunted for their fur, which is illegal now. But people poison pikas, who are considered a pest – manuls then eat poisoned pikas and die

I've heard of these cats but don't know much about them and I certainly have never seen a close up of them! So, this was really nice to see.

We have two females at the zoo I work at (Utah's Hogle Zoo) and they are so funny - it's joked that they are the fiercest animal at the zoo, that even the Amur Tigers are frightened of these little fire crackers. Love their ornery little faces!
