Jump!! Caracal presented by Jack the Lizard More images and stories are at Jack the Lizard Wonder World http://www.animal-dino.com
Caracals live in Africa, the Middle East and North West India. Their habitats are the dry woodland, savannah and semi-desert. The length is about 60 to 91 cm (23.5 to 36 in) and 6 to 19 kg (13 to 42 lb) in weight. The lifespan is about 12 years in the wild and 17 years in captivity. The diets are birds, rodents, hares and hyraxes. They remove the skin or the feathers from prey and leave the guts after meal. They jump amazingly high when they ambush birds. Sometimes the height reaches 3 m (10 ft). Also the power of caracal cannot be underestimated. A caracal is able to knock down the prey larger than itself such as gazelles and small antelope. Despite of fierce appearance caracals can be tamed and in India and Iran help humans to hunt birds.
