Sand Cats (Felis margarita) are small desert dwelling cats that live in the Sahara, the Arabian Desert, and the deserts of Iran and Pakistan. Their paws are covered with long fur to protect them from the hot sands. They live under extreme conditions. Temperatures may rise to 126ºF (52ºC) during the day, and fall to as low as 23ºF (-5ºC) during the night. They are frequent victims of the illegal pet trade and habitat degradation are major threats to the sand cat. The sand cat is listed on the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species as ‘Near Threatened.’ Learn more about sand cat conservation at: http://www.felidaefund.org/?q=species-sand-cat
