They live alone or in mated pairs, and are territorial. They are easily tamed and have been used as hunting animals in India and Iran. Caracals are found throughout Africa and in parts of the Middle East. They live in woodland, scrub forest and savannah. Photographed in Harnas Wildlife Reserve, Namibia.
