More Cubs in Mongolia

A first analysis of research camera photos suggests that at least three female cats in our Long Term Ecological Study in Mongolia are with cubs right now.

The latest trap camera photos from Mongolia have revealed a nice surprise: Lasya, whose adorable cubs we were able to film this summer, is not the only recent mom in our study. At least two other females appear to be with cubs as well!

A first analysis of the available images indicates that the additional cats with cubs may be Anu and F-9, nicknamed Shinejh. Our scientists in the field are working on confirming their identity.
