Wild sand cat in Iran.

Sand cat, also known as sand dune cat (scientific name : Felis margarita) is a small felid, a close relative to the cat.

It lives in deserts in North Africa, Arabia and the Near East. It is a small fierce predator, which feeds on rodents, such as gerbils, jerboas, and jirds, and on other small animals, like lizards or snakes (including venomous ones, like sand viper or desert viper).
