Furry wild cats from the cold Russian steppes, Pallas’s cats are also called Manul, Steppe Cat or Rock Wildcat. In Russia, Manul’s habitat is Siberia: the Republic of Altai, Tuva, Buryatia and South-Eastern Transbaikalia. This endangered animal is very cautious. It’s very difficult to capture Pallas’s cats on camera. Recently, Russian scientists shared camera-trap photos of Manul in the wild.
