Have you heard of the Pallas’s cat? This tiny wild feline is known for being discreet; even the most experienced naturalists have a hard time finding one. Observing it in its natural habitat often requires setting up sneaky camera traps. Check out the result!
You probably realized that here on Best Friends, we have a thing for cats. And if these cats happen to be wild ones, so much the better! Today, we’ve got the pleasure of sharing with you an incredible video recently filmed with a hidden camera right in the heart of China’s plateaus.
Have you ever heard of Pallas’s cat? This tiny feline from the cold, inhospitable highlands of Central Asia is particularly ferocious, and it doesn’t much appreciate running into humans on its territory. Chinese scientists had to resort to camera traps to study its behaviour.
And surprise! On film recovered from a camera set up in Xinjiang province, the researchers were delighted to see not just one cat, but four! Or to be precise: a Pallas’s cat and its four precious kittens. Enjoy all of this video’s fluffy cuteness!
