This Cat Can Leap "Serval" Feet Into the Air to Catch Its Prey.

October 05, 2012

The Serval (Felis serval) can leap over four feet into the air to pounce on its main prey: small rodents. Although currently not endangered, the serval has been hunted for its beautiful pelt across Africa and is now extinct in several regions. It is also losing much of its preferred wetland habitat to human encroachment.
