Smiling baby caracal by woxys Smiling baby caracal by woxys
Baby Cacaral (Caracal caracal, karakal) from ZOO Prague, Czech republic :aww:



Story of the photo: I had great fun, when I was watching the kitty. It was playing with its mommy, jumping through large and natural exhibit. The cub seemed very happy, healthy, active and curious. Its interesting face markings create an illusion of a permanent smile :aww:

Thank you for your coments and faves :hug:
