I agree with RJ on that one, the H10 is brilliant for serval. We once had a brilliant sighting of one on a night drive from satara. :)

Servals are my second favourite animals and i would definately trade 100 lion for a serval sighting :D :D

I'd trade a body part ot two for another serval sighting! :twisted:

Lets not ask what I'd do for a Pangolin/Aardvark or Small-Spotted Cat :roll: :lol:

That must be a very young one. Servals have normaly longer Legs. Well I can only guess what happens, but I can Imagine that the mother was killed and he found out that Mopani is a saftey heaven. Was it the only SErval that you see or was it two?

Anyway Back to the Topic:

I always getting grumpy when I see people feeding Animals because, they learn how to beg and getting a very big Problem. They losse the fear of humans and can get very dangerous. A good exampels are Bushbock they know how to use there Horns ver well, maybe not that good as Oryx, but good enough to give you a big Injury. The bigger Problems are Predators as Hayenas, the will live from litter. They forgott how to hunt that means that whole ecological System collapse. As with the bushbock the also loose the fear and that can be very dangerous. Unfortunatly, many Tourist enjoy feeding Wild Animals. It is a pitty.
