Black-Eared Beauties

This beauty is the Caracal. The name caracal comes from the Turkish word ‘Karakulak’, which means “black-ear”. The biggest of the small cats, the caracal is sometimes called a Persian, or African Lynx, despite not being a lynx at all. Capable of leaping 3m (10ft) in the air, they were once trained for bird hunting in India and Iran.
