Sand Cats are amazing felines and are the only cat breed to live exclusively in the deserts of Africa and Southeast Asia. These tiny cats weigh only four to eight pounds as fully grown adults, and survive in the harshest of deserts - including the Sahara! To help them endure the oppressive heat of their environment, they have extremely large ears that help cool them down, and long fur between their toes to protect their paws from the hot sand.
Sand Cats are truly astounding creatures, and it’s impossible not to love them. Not only are they amazing at surviving in hot deserts, they also happen to be adorable-looking. That’s why we’ve gathered the Top Ten Sand Cat photographs for you!
