The Caracal (Felis caracal) is a muscular slender cat. The name Caracal is derived from a Turkish word “karakulak” meaning “black ear. It is a powerful predator, distinguished by its reddish-brown coat, short tail and lynx-like tufted ears. Long back legs propel a prodigious leap, enabling it to capture birds in flight.
