Meet Caracals: The Cutest Cat Species

Although I am not a cat person, I can barely say no to these adorable baby caracal – a medium-sized wild cat native to Africa, the Middle East, Central Asia and India. These beautiful creatures have been religiously significant to the ancient Egyptians. They appear in their paintings, bronze figurines, whereas their sculptures were believed to guard the tombs of pharaohs. They all have long, black hair growing from the backs of their ears which makes them standout from other cats with rocking style. Although caracals are wild cats, it is said they can be easily domesticated and even kept as pets. But you need to make sure it is legal to raise in your country and don’t forget about its grown-up size (78 centimeters, 12–18 kg for male and 73 centimeters, 8–13 kg for female).
