Endangered Chinese Mountain Cats Caught On Video For The First Time Ever

This is the moment a small family of endangered, rare Chinese Mountain Cats were recently caught on video for the first time ever.

There are less than 10,000 of these unique furballs left in the wild, hence being listen on the endangered species list.

You can easily spot on of these cats by their uniquely colored ‘sand’ fur, which sharply contrasts their dark “guard hair” and ringed tails.

They are just a little bigger than your regular domestic cats. They can weigh between 10-20 pounds and have a sturdy build with somewhat shorter legs.

They prefer to hunt at night, just like most other wild cats, and their diet consists of pikas, which are a small rodent found in the areas they reside in. They do sometimes eat small birds too.

These little cuties are living in the northwest of China in the Qinghai Province.
