If you want to see the cutest cat species on planet Earth we advise you to keep reading! Perhaps you’ve already heard of these adorable creatures, called caracals, but if not, be prepared to be amazed. Especially the baby caracals are to die for. These lovely animals have been religiously important to the ancient Egyptians. You can find them on Egyptian paintings, bronze figures and their sculptures were even used to guard pharaoh tombs.
You can find caracals in the Middle East, Africa, and the Indian subcontinent. The adult caracal can run as fast as up to 50mph and weighs up to 18kgs (40lbs). They might be wild animals but they can actually be easily domesticated and even kept as pets. However, in some countries, the law doesn’t allow it so don’t get ahead of yourself just yet.
