The caracal is an elegant cat with short reddish-brown fur on the back and sides. The chin, throat and underside are white. These wild cats have distinctive long black ears with white at the ear base, and long tufts of black fur at the tips.
Caracals are often found in their preferred environments; woodland, savannah and scrub forests. Caracals use abandoned burrows, rock crevices or dense vegetation for their dens. They are carnivorous and prey on birds, rodents, and small antelopes. They stalk their prey before pouncing upon it. Caracals sometimes store remains of prey in tree forks or dense shrubs for later feeding.
Come track down the Caracal with me next year. I still have a few spots let on my Tanzania photo safari. https://www.kevinpepperphotography.com/2019-tanzania-photo-safari
