Amazing Cat

  This beautiful specimen is a Manul, otherwise known as Pallas’s Cat.It is one of the first two modern cats to evolve and it hasn’t changed since.The main reason for its survival throughout the ages has been its isolation. In the wild it lives on the Asian steppes at substantial heights – up to 13,000 feet. Based in India, Pakistan, western China and Mongolia as well as Afghanistan and Turkmenistan, it has even been discovered recently in the wilds of the Sayan region of Siberia. The pupils of the Manul are round, not slit-like. Proportionally too, the legs are smaller than cats we know and they can’t run anywhere near as quickly.
