Pallas’s cat was shooted by photo camera high in Altai mountains
Pallas’s cat was shooted by the photo camera on the Chikhachev’s Ridge (Altai Republic, Russia) on October 8, 2011. It occured on the mountain edge at the height of 3400 m above see level in the upper Kara-Oyuk valley. The camera was set by the researcher of Altaisky reserve Sergey Spitsyn in the frames of joint project of WWF and Snow Leopard Conservancy on snow leopard monitoring. Earlier Pallas’s cats were fixed by photo cameras set for snow leopard study in neighbor Tyva Republic.
Known data on Pallas’s cat distribution in Altai-Sayan ecoregion belongs mainly to central and periphery parts of intermountain depressions of Altai and Tyva. Data on Pallas’s cat at the heights more than 2500-2700 m above see level are very poor. So all data on this rare cat species here is important and interesting.
