First Ever Birth of Pallas’ Kittens with the Help of Advanced ScienceThree healthy Pallas’ Cat kittens (two males and one female) were born on June 8th, 2011 at the Cincinnati Zoo & Botanical Garden following a laparoscopic oviductal artificial insemination (AI) procedure conducted by scientists from the Cincinnati Zoo’s Center for Conservation and Research of Endangered Wildlife (CREW). 
Pallas’ cats (Otocolobus manul) are native to Central Asia and  are considered near-threatened in the wild due to poaching, habitat loss  and rodent control programs.  In North American zoos, Pallas’ cats are  managed in a captive breeding program under the auspices of the  Association of Zoos & Aquariums (AZA).  Currently, there are ~50  Pallas’ cats housed in 19 North American zoos.
