Return from Local Extinction

Here are some cutie-pie Sand Cat kittens, a desert feline once extinct in Israel. The species Felis margarita has been locally revived through the breeding of captive individuals and their reintroduction to the habitat (Hat tip: Trans-D Digital Art). There are several sub-species and the entire species actually has a near threatened status worldwide. See this litter on Youtube here. The report is from August 2012, so these kittens likely now look like this.
