Look Out! There’s Two Of Them!

Only recently has the zoo staff started putting out the two adult Caracal at the same time. The male is Cricket and the Female is Peggy.

They are fascinating predatory cats with their pointy blue/black ears that make them almost comical. Don’t kid yourself though as they are reported to bring down prey three times their body weight.

Both cats have taken to the security of a small cave barely big enough for the two of them. I had to capture this shot today because of Peggy’s stare at me while Cricket went about grooming himself. It’s not the sharpest picture I’ve ever taken but it is a unique situation.
