Amazing footage! WOW!

Does anyone know what the caracal was eating?

Nico, those are wonderful sightings! I love caracals! It almost looks like another jackal that the caracal is eating, looking at the ears and tail. Is that possible?

It looks like a Bat- eared Fox the Caracal has killed :thumbs_up:

Hi Kooscra, you are right, it was a Bat-eared Fox that was killed by the Caracal and the Jackals took it away but the Caracal came back for his prey and fought for it. I was very glad with these footage that I made in august 2008 near Nossob. :wink:
