The Pallas’ Cat or Otocolobus manul is a wild cat which is native to the steppes of Asia. These cats are classified as threatened or endangered, and a number of zoos around the world have established breeding programs, exchanging the cats they breed to keep them diverse and healthy.
Pallas’ Cats are about the size of ordinary housecats, with very stocky, muscular bodies. They also have extremely long fur and short legs. Pallas’ Cats have distinctively flattened faces, and most notably, their pupils are round, rather than vertical. Their bodies are adapted for life at high altitude, with broad feet which allow them to walk on snow, and thick, luxurious coats to keep them warm.
