A caracal is a golden cat that lives in dry regions, from Africa to India. When a caracal is ready to attack, it turns its ears toward its back, but doesn't completely flatten them (as seen in the picture). Next is the most common leopard species.
The Caracal (aka desert lynx) is a wild cat widely distributed across Africa, central Asia and SW Asia into India. The felid is considered threatened in north Africa, and rare in the central Asian republics and India.
