Rarity: Ultra Rare
Caracal Cats, often called African Lynxes, are medium-sized African cats that live all over Africa, hence their nickname, and in southern parts of Asia. Caracals have yellowish-red coats that vary in darkness with black markings on their faces. One of their most distinguishing features is the tufts of black hair at the ends of their pointed ears. These features help camouflage the caracals in the African brush, making the graceful cat and avid hunter. Caracals can grow to be about 35 to 40 pounds and can live up to 12 years in the wild.
Living in the open dry African desert and savannahs, the Caracal is a master of camouflage. Caracals are active during the night, and usually sleep in crevices during the day to beat the heat. They are adept tree climbers, and often will take their prey (usually consisting of lizards, small buck, and dassies) into a tree to eat it without interruption. Caracals are usually solitary unless they are paired with a mate, and have litters of one to three cubs. Sadly, in certain areas, the Caracals are considered to be highly endangered and are not widely protected throughout their territory.
