Serval’s Attention

By sherlob    
A Serval - perhaps one of the lesser known of Africa’s large cats - focuses its attention on something to my left (probably my wife!).

Servals are mainly nocturnal, although they may sighted in the wild at dawn and dusk. The Serval pictured is a captive example, which I got to meet up close a personally on a recent trip to South Africa (at the Tanikwa Wildlife Rehabilitation Centre). Whilst like most wildlife their numbers are threatened by our impact on the environment, there are examples where our presence has increased their numbers - but at what cost?
