Cute but ferocious: N.C. Zoo announces birth of sand cat kitten

Sand cats may be small but don’t let their petite size fool you. They’re wild, fearless hunters that kill venomous snakes in the desert. They’re also a rare sight  to see, which is why the N.C. Zoo is excited to announce the birth of a sand cat on Monday, Aug. 10. The kitten, small enough to fit into a teacup, was born to mother Najma, 3, and father Cosmo, five. This is the first kitten for the pair.
