Lake Superior Zoo’s Pabu the Pallas Cat is not a domesticated cat despite the fact that he appears like it.
Lead keeper Emily Perala keeps in mind that a person of his specifying functions is his ‘grumpy’ looking face. She informs us, “It’s just their faces are structured differently than a lot of the cats we’re used to seeing. They do have kind of a fun personality too. Very sneaky.”
These cats are from Central Asia, parts of Mongolia, Russia, China, and Afghanistan- in general, locations that are all cold.
Emily likewise discusses, “They have really small ears, as you can see. They’re positioned on the side of their head, more than on the top of their head. That’s because it’s so rocky where they’re found. There’s not a whole lot to hide behind.”
