Nature

Grumpy-Faced Cat is a Mountain Survivor

Clip: Season 35 Episode 4 | 1m 52s

Pallas’s cats have learned to cope with mountain life. They often live in rock dens, which keep them well protected. They hunt insects, small rodents, and birds by using rocks for cover. But out in the open these 9 pound cats are vulnerable to attack from eagles and wolves, so they move with extreme caution.
