Pallas's cat (Otocolobus manul), also called the manul, is a small wild cat with a broad, but fragmented distribution in the grasslands and montane steppes of Central Asia. It is negatively affected by habitat degradation, prey base decline and hunting. It has been classified as Least Concern on the IUCN Red List since 2020. The Pallas's cat was first described in 1776 by the German naturalist Peter Simon Pallas (Wikipedia).
