Also called ‘Manul,’ Pallas’s cats are found in Mongolia, Central Asia, and the Tibetan plateau. They inhabit rocky grasslands and shrublands. They differ from other cat family members (Felidae) with their round pupils, shorter legs, and long, thick fur.
They are usually the size of a domestic cat and have greyish fur. Moreover, Pallas’s cats are solitary animals and highly specialized predators of rodents and other small mammals. They generally catch their prey by stalking near the burrows’ exits but have also been seen to pull out rodents from shallow burrows with their paws.
