Serval

By Fred263
Thanks for your clicks, comments & votes to my previous image for which I'm most appreciative. I would especially like to thank Jeff(Kojack) & Isabel(Chinga) for their much valued UAs.

I hope you may like my image of the Serval which was taken at ZSL, London Zoo a few days ago. It was looking for prey while it was allowed to roam freely among spectators (not the prey)Smile under the watchful eye of its keeper on an open lawn which was surrounded by tall bushes. It enjoyed most of its free time hidden in the tall bushes.Smile

Servals are a medium-sized African wild cat & are found in grasslands typically south of the Sahara Desert. It has the largest ears and the longest legs in the cat family compared to their body size. Their prey is generally less than 200g & may consist of hares, reptiles, insects, fish and frogs. Sadly, they are considered by some as a status symbol & are traded as pets in the illegal wildlife trade.

Thanks for looking & have a great day.

Wonderful capture Fred, a very striking creature.
FYI, A group of cats is called a clowder. It can also be called a glaring.

Stellar capture Fred .A fellow told me once he owned one of these. Weighed in at 40-50 pounds, I would be worried of the harm it could inflict on people if I had one. Best left in the wild I agree!
