Caracals of Big Cat Rescue

The name Caracal is derived from a Turkish word "karakulak" meaning "black ear." They are native to Africa, Asia, and the Middle East. Caracals live in the drier savannah and woodland regions of sub-Saharn Africa, and prefer the more scrubby, arid habitats. They will also inhabit evergreen and montane forests, but are not found in tropical rain forests.
