A rare sand cat kitten was born at the Zoological Center Tel Aviv Ramat Gan three weeks ago and is now on public view.

According to the IUCN Redlist, sand cats are threatened in the wild. They inhabit the deserts of the Middle East and northern Africa. There, they hunt primarily small rodents and get all of their water from consuming their prey.
