It feeds mainly on birds, rodents and small antelopes. It lives alone or in mated pairs, and is territorial. Caracals are easily tamed and have been used as hunting animals in India and Iran. It is found throughout Africa and in parts of the Middle East, living in woodland, scrub forest and savannah. Photographed in Cobham, South Africa.
