Description

The first one seen on the road at 21:30 in the night.

The second 200 m from the first one a few minutes later.

The third was seen 2018-01-21 rather close to Oued Jenna ( 22.680367, -14.495726 ) on the road at night

Is it possible to see if they are Stenodactylus petrii or Stenodactylus sthenodactylus
from these crappy pictures??

Description

The Sand Cat was discovered at the roadside but ran into the desert when we stopped the car. It moved around 600 m along the road in 40 minutes. Sometimes running, sometimes hunting.

The area was very open with nearly no bushes but some very short green vegetation.
