Close Encounters of the Feline Kind

I had a great encounter with some quasi-tame leopard cubs today:

The leopards were very, very feisty. My internet connection is slow, so I don't know when I'll be able to upload the video. Suffice it to say that it provides an entertaining explanation of why I needed a lot of antibiotic cream today. Don't worry, it's just a flesh wound.

There are other felids that I got to meet today. Bet you don't know what this is:

It's a serval. Servals are African cats of medium size, which are so agile that they can leap to catch birds on the wing.

Wishing you all a restful Shabbos!

  1. Serval - domestic cat hybrids are kept as pets:

  2. would you ever raise a lion as a pet ? (wife/kids permitting)

  3. also when you travl in an open jeep. what do you do if a lion takes a leap inside ?

  4. I saw videos of domesticated servals on YouTube. Are they easy to tame? Are they safe?
