Caracal Photo Gallery

Wild Cats /

The Caracal (<em>Caracal caracal</em>) is a fiercely territorial cat. Although it has traditionally had the alternative names Persian Lynx, Egyptian Lynx and African Lynx, it is no longer considered to be an actual lynx. Instead, it is now believed to be closely related to the African golden cat and the Serval. Caracals are rarely seen in the wild despite their relative abundance, as they hide extremely well. Because it is so easily tamed, the Caracal is sometimes kept as a pet and can adapt to living with humans.
