Wonderful Sand Cat (Felis margarita, kocka poustni) from ZOO Ohrada, Hluboka nad Vltavou, Czech republic :aww:


My friend *Allerlei took this awesome photo: :hug:


Thank you for your comments and faves :hug:
____________


INFO ABOUT THE ANIMAL:

Name: Sand Cat (Felis margarita)
Location: Sahara, Arabian Desert, deserts of Iran and Pakistan
Size: 50 cm + 30 cm long tail weight: 2, 7 kg
Diet: rodents, lizards, birds and insects
Conservation status: Near Threatened
Enemies: humans, wolves, snakes, raptors
Interesting facts: Sand cats have thick fur on their paws, so they can walk on hot sand | cats do not have to drink water – they gain all the water they need from the body of their prey | cats dig their prey into sand to come back and eat it later | they live solitarily

near threatened --- it is a good status :D it means that they are not endangered now, but people should be more careful about them or so :D

Lol well, to me xD I rather have 'em a little "over populated" then "near threatened", but I'm glad their not endangered now ><! Too bad people can't really teach other people lessons about "bad" and "good".
