A gorgeous and incredibly rare Andean mountain cat was caught on camera via a remote trail cam. Watch:
Here’s another video of the rare cat that was filmed a few years ago on another trail cam:
The Andean mountain cat is a small, endangered wild cat that lives in the Andes. Their population is estimated at only 2,500 individuals. The legendary cat was only known to science by a couple photographs prior to 1998. Since then, researchers have begun studying these rare cats more closely, in part by using remote trail cameras like the ones seen here.
