Pallas's cat - animal of the felidae family, living mostly in central Asia. They were discovered in 1776 by Peter Pallas on the Caspian coast. Pallas's cats are quite rare and even though it's hard to estimate their population it is known that it [the population] is decreasing. In captivity Pallas's cats live up to 13-15 years. Pallas's cats do not become domestic even if they lived in captivity for many years and if somebody gets too close to the cat, the animal, usually unagressive, can seriously injure the intruder. His teeth arealmost three times longer than those of a domestic cat. Manuli eat small gnawing animals: chickweeds,voles, ground squirrels,etc.
