This captive-bred male caracal’s parents were rescued when they were kittens in South Africa. Caracals move their young every day to protect them from predators. Khan’s mother was seen being dropped and abandoned during one of these moves. While caracals are considered endangered in parts of their range, in South Africa, they are treated as vermin, so Khan’s parents could not be released back into the wild. Instead, they were shipped to a breeder in the US to promote education about this rare and magnificent species.
