As we're a natural history museum we're probably not best-suited to consider how preserve most removed statues. I believe other local institutions are looking into various cases?

Last but by no means least, we have the sand cat. Found in Northern Africa, the Middle East and Central Asia, these are the only truly desert-dwelling cats in the world. They can cope with temperatures of -25°C to 40°C!

Pallas's cats are small and stocky, and most often seen in high altitude grasslands in Central Asia. They aren't very fast, so instead of running away from predators, these cats will usually hide, often in rocky areas or animal burrows.
