Caracal (Felis caracal)


Weight:60 lb.


Gestation:70-78 days

Litter Size:1-4 cubs

Life span:~15 years

Status:The caracal population is relatively stable except for some Asian subspecies. In India the caracal is profiting from the tiger conservations. It takes twenty caracal skins to make one coat, but they are not of high value, so trading is not very common. The future of the caracal looks optimistic.
