On the contrary, Wei Kang found that they were not just playing around, but they were doing so to smash their weight into the sand. Occasionally, they ended up pulling some small animals out of the sand to eat. Sometimes, they even drilled a shallow hole for food and then crawled into the hole. Then they emerged from the sand, usually with a sand dune gecko in their mouths. With a few bites, they were able to swallow the gecko in full. A cat that was not good at climbing trees but was good at digging in sand. In order to deal with the high temperature of the sand, the cats had thick hair on their claws. Their claws could not be retracted like those of domestic cats and were constantly exposed. It might be for them to be able to dig into the sand. In theory, sand cats were widely distributed across the Asian and African continents. However, people had not seen living sand cats in the wild for several years. They had almost no knowledge of the population of this rare animal, and no scientists specialized in studying them. The research done on their group behavior and habits was basically zero—it was not because scientists were not working hard to study them. They could not find wild sand cats. Even photos of sand cats were used repeatedly for several years, since they recycled old photos taken from the past. Wei Kang did not think about the fame and honor brought by this discovery. He focused on recording every move with his eyes and camera because no one knew when they would disappear. He had only one small regret. He wished he had woken up his students so that they could see these rare creatures in real life.
