Although wild sand kittens are not meant to be kept as pets, they’re still felines with adorable features. They have sand-colored fur and an incredible ability to go unnoticed through the desert. So it was a big deal for members of the big cat organization called Panthera to finally be able to spot these kittens on camera for the first time ever.
Led by biologists Grégory Breton and Dr. Alexander Sliwa, the team found the kittens in the Moroccan Sahara desert and were lucky enough to film them! This breed of kittens can be found only in North Africa, The Middle East and Central Asia and they’re so rare, some people thought they were just a myth – until now!
