Today we’re going to shed some light on one of them and why we think they might just be the slenderest wild cat you’ve ever seen.

Feel the caracal, ladies, and gentlemen.
This russet-colored beauty not only has a fascinating history, but they are also simply amazing to behold!

This majestic cat is called a caracal

Officially considered a small cat, they can grow very large with the largest in sizes of up to nearly 50 pounds.

Depending on the area they are in, the Caracal fur may differ in color from reddish-brown to tawny-gray.

They are typically solitary creatures, but they can sometimes be found in pairs. Short tails and tufted ears are somewhat similar to a lynx or bobcat in the desert.

Caracals dig burrows to raise their offspring until they are sufficiently mature to go into the wild. Interestingly, they are highly adapted and able to climb trees. The caracal can jump up to three meters in the air to capture flying birds with its strong and long hind legs.

Often kept as pets, there is a fairly good relationship between Caracals and humans.

Their name comes from the Turkish word “Karakulak,” meaning black eyes. You might be able to tell why.

With very, very little water, caracals will survive. In reality, from their prey, they get most of their water.

They feed mainly rabbits and mice, but they have a real taste for birds, like most cats. The remarkable jumping ability of the caracal once contributed to the species being prepared for Persian and Indian royalty to hunt game birds.

They’re diurnal, much like your own house cat, meaning they’re most busy in the morning and in the evening.

The caracal will run down prey including small antelopes and hares, being the fastest cat of its size.
