This is lovely, pity it was not more clear. How does this compare with the Rooikat?

Such abeautiful animal to see. and such a rare sighting.. i think i was just a tiny little kid when i saw my first serval, in Kruger Park. Early morning out of the gate and just a glimpse of this rare cat in the headlights on the side of the road. then gone!
Thanks for sharing 🙂

Hi Cecile, the Rooikat is the afrikaans name for the Caracal. The best thing would be to look on the internet for a picture of the Caracal to compare it to the photo seen here of the Serval. You will see that the caracal is also a beautiful cat but with a reddish coat and spindly black ears. Both cats are beautiful and both very rare in this area.
