The North Carolina Zoo is temporarily suspending operations
effective March 17 until further notice. More information.
Zookeepers at the North Carolina Zoo found a unique way to provide exercise for the sand cats: a cat-sized exercise wheel. Training the cats to walk on the wheel allows them to stay fit while burning energy and calories.
This species is cooperatively managed as part of the Association of Zoos and Aquariums' Species Survival Plan program program. This program is responsible for developing a Breeding and Transfer Plan for each species in the program.
