There are over 600 million cats in the world.
But still to this day, there are species out there that are yet to be caught on camera – including sand cats.
Sand cats are found in the Middle East, north Africa and central Asia, and live in the desert.
Locating sand cats is notoriously difficult because their sand-coloured coats can be used as a camouflage. They don’t leave any footprints due to their furry paws.
Alongside this, they are very always tidy up after theirselves and only travel with the shade of night, leaving no tracks for possible photographers to follow.
The kittens, aged six to eight weeks old, were captured by big cat organisation Panthera.
“Finding these kittens was astonishing” said Breton, managing director of Panthera France.
The organisation spotted three pairs of eyes glowing in the darkness, and were completely shocked when it turned out to be the incredibly rare cats.
Unfortunately, as cute as they are, they can’t be kept as pets…
