Three caracal (lynx) Fells caracal kittens, two females and a male were received from the Fish River area some 50 km north of Cradock, Republic of South Africa, on the 20th March 1980. These were found at the base of a dense Rhus erosa bush on the side of a hill and estimated at 14 days old based on the findings of Cade (1968 Int. Zoo Yb. 45) and Kralik (1967 Int. Zoo Yb. 132).
