A Pallas's Cat is a small wild cat found in parts of Central Asia. They are named after German zoologist Peter Pallas, who first described the species in 1776.
Pallas's Cats have a long, thick coat of fur that helps them survive in cold climates. They have distinctive markings around their eyes and mouth that make them easy to identify.
These cats are solitary animals and prefer to live alone. They are excellent hunters and can take down prey much larger than themselves.
Pallas's Cats are not currently threatened with extinction, but they are considered vulnerable due to their limited range and the threats posed by humans.
