Israel Saving Sand Cats From Extinction

Four rare sand cats (Felis margarita), native yet extinct in Israel, were born in a zoo in Ramat Gan Safari near Tel Aviv last year.

Israel borrowed the two remaining sand cats from Germany and Poland to create the litter. Ironic considering Germany and Poland were the two countries where millions of jews were murdered in an attempt to make them extinct.

These cats are the only breed adapted to desert life.  The burrowing felines have extra large ears to 'hear' their prey underground.

The cats are prone to respiratory problems and are too timid to have one running around the house. Which is probably why they're in danger of extinction.
