Abstract Dietary plasticity and diet composition of Pallas's cat (Otocolobus manul) was quantified in central Mongolia. Diet of Pallas's cat was assessed by scat analyses, and prey surveys were used to estimate prey availability. Prey selection was calculated using multinomial likelihood ratio tests. Analysis of 146 scats identified 249 prey items. Pallas's cats ate a broad range of small mammals, insects, birds, reptiles, and carrion, but Daurian pikas (Ochotona dauurica) were the most… Expand
