The smiling Serval

Category: Spontaneous Moments


Photo and caption by Nikhil Sachdeva

Photographed during March 2011 a trip to South Africa. The Serval is not as well know as the large cats, probably because they are smaller, mainly nocturnal and solitary. The serval is much larger than the domestic cat. It is long legged, the hind legs longer than the front legs. The neck is long and its head small, with large, very erect ears.

Location: South Africa
