Artist's Description

This little guy posed for me just sitting on this rock looking out like he was in deep contemplation about some important manner.

This is a Sand Cat (Felis margarita). Sand Cats are Wild Cats of African and Asian deserts. They are only the size of a small house cat. As their common name suggests, Sand Cats live only in areas of dry sandy deserts. These cats also have very large ears which they use to listen to prey underground. Once detected, they dig rapidly to retrieve their unwary prey. Their keen hearing also helps them to detect predators in which they will skulk quietly away before being seen. Lastly, Sand Cats vocalizations are very similar to domestic cats. One difference is a high pitched barking sound that is usually made when looking for a mate.

This particular individual posed for me at the Rosamond Gifford Zoo in Syracuse NY.
