I think it's a low, rasping, gutteral sound — at least that's what I was told I was hearing :?

It sounds like someone sawing wood and is made while inhaling and exhaling.

The serval has many distintive features. Name 3.

Just my 2 cents, but I avoid all the revolving quizzes as I have neither the time nor the desire to be thinking up questions — but I love participating in the few quizzes that aren't revolving. I just don't (or didn't :wink: ) know enough about servals to reply to that question. But now I've learned something! And you can be sure I'll join in here when I can, because it's one of the few quizzes that's NOT a revolving one. Keep up your good work, WAC! :clap: :clap:

True, true... Ok I'll keep it like this for now.

The caracal feeds on two birds in particular in KNP. What are they?
