Sand (sand) cat is the Peter pan of the cat family. Representatives of this species look like kittens throughout life, so it seems that they never grow up.
Sand cats live in the desert areas of North Africa, the Arabian Peninsula, Central Asia and Pakistan and are under threat of extinction due to illegal trade and hunting.
Despite the cute appearance, these cats adapted to the harsh environmental conditions. They can easily tolerate temperatures from -5 to +52 °C and can live for months without water, removing only the minimum of moisture from the food.
