Caution: These Caracal Kittens Will Captivate Your Heart With One Glance

If you’ve always dreamed of owning an exotic animal, the caracal is all you need. It is simply impossible to resist to the beauty of these lovely cats, which are so much like a small lynx.

If you don’t know how a lynx looks, I suggest that you visit Michael Quinton’s post, Tracking the Lynx. He has a great story and some even greater photos of a Lynx in its natural habitat.

Now back to our furry little animals, the caracal cats.

The caracal (Caracal caracal) is a medium-sized wild cat that lives in Africa, the Middle East, Persia and the Indian subcontinent. It reaches 40–50 centimetres (16–20 in) at the shoulder, and weighs 8–18 kilograms (18–40 lb). The coat is uniformly reddish tan or sandy, while the ventral parts are lighter with small reddish markings. The caracal is characterised by a robust build, long legs, a short face, long tufted ears, and long canine teeth. It was first described by German naturalist Johann Christian Daniel von Schreber in 1777. Eight subspecies are recognised.Wikipedia

In their natural environment, caracal live in Africa, the Middle East, and the Indian subcontinent and can weigh up to 18 kilograms.

Properly raised in an enclosure, these kittens can be tamed to become kind and loving pets.
