:doh: Of course yes. I was wondering, as I had the shrike as a possibility as well. But all's well that ends well. Well done Kath, now you can ask and I can (try and) answer - much prefer that! :twisted:

OK, lemme have a stab:

1 - E. well, according to Smithers and Stuart - NONE! But I guess serval (65-75 - Smithers, 68-72 - Stuart) is what you're looking for.
2 - A.
3 - B.
4 - A - not sure here what exactly you mean with the pigment. Pigment where?

I assume that question 1 is D and E considering these two cats have a very similar gestation period. I also assume that my incorrect answer is question 4, maybe it should be B instead?
Great question by the way!

Bush fairy & rosshawkins - You both got them all right.
1)Approx gestation periods
I had AWC at 58 days, BFC at 67days, Cheetah 92 days, Caracal 71 days, Serval 73days
So indeed D & E were right
2)BFC - has habit of inhabiting disused anthills hence 'anthill tiger'- so A
3) serval -so B
d) Black paws but unusually pink skin apart from pads of feet.- so B

SO BUSHFAIRY YOU ARE IT as you were first!!!
Ross - just beaten to the post, but nice to have you join us!
Thanks all, hope you agree with my answers -if not let me know - I'm still learning!!!!!
