I have a friend from the flat land and I also have to explain to him in words of one syllable.

if you see them all that is the prize it self :dance:

If you donate a bottle DQ, we can give it, but you had better keep it as my one has just been finished :twisted:

Tha Caracal deserves a special bonus prize.

Maybe an added bottle of Scotch.

I thought about caracal but it is so rarely seen. I wanted it to be realistic.

Just imagine the excitement if you do see one. Almost like seeing a Roan.

Should it not be 6 cats and 1 dog .. Although I don't know if Hyaena actually classify as a cat as well. Thou they are more closely related to cats then dogs?

I say include the Caracal. I've seen more Caracal then Serval (1 caracal last year and no serval to date) :lol:

OK, OK, OK

Thanks to popular demand, let's change it to this. Note change in starting date.

Hyenas look like dogs so please allow me some poetic licence here. Thanks.

The prize: seeing the full house should be prize enough . The first lucky blighter buys a road brick in My Acre of Africa with '6 cats 2 dogs' as a line on it, and places it on the S100. OK!

6 cats
Lion
Leopard
Cheetah
Serval
Caracal
African wild cat

2 dogs
Wild dog
Spotted hyena.


This could serve for regulars as an alternative challenge to the big 5 mania, which one can realistically see before lunch on a good day.

Any objections, no I thought not, now let's go and look for them!
