Caracal is closely related to the serval and African golden cat and not to the lynx. Prefers dry forests or savannas and can live long without drinking: it gets the needed amount of fluids from its prey. Excellent jumper: can jump up to 3 meters from standing. Caracals have been trained to hunt to entertain Indian wealthy people just like cheetahs.
Currently two caracals live in Tallinn Zoo: male Obama and female Naomi.
