The team found the fossil in a large, high-altitude basin in the Himalayas in Tibet. The cat came from a rich deposit of fossils that offers some clues to what Panthera blytheae's neighbors were like. The deposit included badgers, squirrels, foxes, three-toed horses, antelope… even a wooly rhinoceros (Yeah, like the mammoth, but a rhino). The antelope limb bones are all oriented in same direction in the deposit, so Tseng thinks there was probably a river or creek running through the area and that animal bodies would get swept into the water, then pile up downstream. "Otherwise," he says, "it's impossible to fit all these animals in this hole."
