"Pallas's cat, also called the manul, is a small wild cat having a broad but patchy distribution in the grasslands and montain steppe of Central Asia. These little darlings learn to growl aggressively before their eyes even open."
Pampas cat (Leopardus pajeros) is a small cat native to Argentina, Chile, Bolivia, Peru, Ecuador and Columbia. This variant has flanks with large, reddish-brown, rosette-shaped spots with darker borders, numerous rings on the tail (of the same colour as the flank spots), and very dark brown (almost black) stripes on the legs and spots/stripes on the underparts. In colour and pattern, this group closely resembles colocolos of the subspecies L. colocolo wolffsohni.
The Pallas cat (Otocolobus manul) is a wild cat of Central Asia. It reaches about 65 cm [26 inches], with a tail with half its size. It seems larger because of its thick fur, which is even longer in winter and changes color depending on the season. It feeds on birds and small mammals such as squirrels, marmots and rats. It is threatened with extinction due to scarcity of food that increases because their prey are poisoned and the devastation of their habitat to agriculture.
Pallas' cat (also known Manul) - The small, solitary wild cat inhabits uplands, hilly areas, steppes with rocky outcrops as well as semidesert areas throughout Asia and the Middle East. It resides on the cold grasslands of Mongolia and Inner Mongolia too. Pallas roams up to elevations of 4,000m but never regions of deep snow accumulation. Inclined toward aggressive natures. As kittens, they will growl before they can open their eyes. Status: Near Threatened (Photographer Jodea)
