Caracal : The Desert Lynx | AFRICA'S LITTLE 5
Caracal Top facts
The caracal is a fearsome predator with remarkable speed and agility, allowing it to tackle prey up to three times its size.
With its strong and lengthy hind legs, the caracal is able to leap up to three metres in the air to catch flying birds.
The caracal’s impressive leaping ability once led to the species being trained to hunt game birds for the Persian and Indian royalty.
Being the fastest cat of its size, the caracal is able to run down prey such as small antelopes and hares.
