Pallas's cat is a small wild cat species that is native to Central Asia.

They are also known as manuls, and are known for their distinctive round faces and long, dense fur.

Pallas's cats are adapted to live in cold, arid environments and are found in mountainous regions of Central Asia, including Mongolia, China, and Russia.

They are solitary animals that are active primarily at night, and are known for their excellent hunting skills.

Pallas's cats are considered a near-threatened species, with a declining population due to habitat loss and hunting.

They are not commonly kept as pets, and are protected by international laws that prohibit their trade and exploitation.

Pallas's cats have a unique vocalization that sounds like a high-pitched bark or meow.

Their diet primarily consists of small mammals, such as rodents and pikas.

Pallas's cats have a lifespan of around 8-10 years in the wild, and up to 16 years in captivity.
