Caracal

Caracal caracal

Description:

Portrait of a wild caracal in South Africa's Eastern Cape!

Habitat:

We saw this beautiful caracal in South Africa's magical Eastern Cape. Caracals can be found in much of Africa and Asia in a variety of habitats, including savannah, forested areas, or scrublands.

Notes:

This individual was travelling by the side of the road in a semi-forested area in the Eastern Cape shortly before sunset. It was a wonderful moment that I will never forget, and feel very honoured to have witnessed!

Hi Kathleen! I have added some more field notes and the scientific name, let me know if they are adequate!

Hi Alena! I love your portrait of the Caracal. Could you please enter the scientific name in the proper field and add some field notes like details about this encounter? that would be great! I would like to nominate it for SOTW but there is not enough information supplied here about the spotting. Thanks!
