Before visiting Asia Quest at the Columbus Zoo, I had never heard of the Pallas Cat. While fairly small, it was more active than most of the larger cats such as the leopard, tigers and lions. Every time I visited the Pallas Cat, he was very alert and defensive. I got the impression he would not have made a very pleasant house-cat—unless, of course, you want your furniture and hands mauled.

From the information I gathered online, the Pallas cat is widespread but uncommon in Asia. It is hunted for its luxurious gray, red and rusty fur.

The Pallas Cat is sometimes called a Manul.
