Did you know that the African Caracal Cat has the claim to fame of being the “Fastest Small Cat” in the World! The Caracal Lynx also specializes in hunting birds, capable of highly acrobatic aerial jumps after flushing them out of their hiding spots. The mere sight of an African Caracal sends their Avian Prey running or should I say, “Flying” the other way. Due to their love of hunting and eating birds, some African Airports have been known to breed and raise families of Wild Caracals on the airport grounds as “Runway Maintenance”. These “Caracal Patrols” are highly effective in keeping birds off the runway and flight path thus minimizing the amount of “Bird Strikes” to airplanes and their engines, which can be catastrophic.
