Felis margarita

The Sand Cat’s Latin name above basically means pearl cat. They are native to the arid areas of Northern Africa, Arabia, Central Asia, and Pakistan. Like the Black-footed Cat, the Sand Cat can live without drinking water! Instead it obtains the fluid it requires from its prey. Sand Cats live in the sandy desert. (No surprise there!)

Sand Cats have large ears and acute hearing.
