When: December 6, 2017
Where: Zie-ZOO Volkel, The Netherlands
When you've taken a lot of photos of the Servals at this zoo already, it's a fun challenge to try and take a "new", more original photo.
With the fencing posing a challenge of itself, this compositoon came to be and I must say, I rather like it Instead of just focusing on a Serval's big ears, now their rather impressive long neck is on display too
Latin name: Leptailurus Serval
Originiates from Africa.
Current status: Least Concern
Did you know:
…DNA studies have shown that the Serval is closely related to the African Wild Cat, and the Caracal.
…Its long legs make it able for the Serval to achieve a top speed of 80 km/h (50 mph).
…The white spots on the back of the Serval’s ears are called “ocelli” and are used to signal kittens when hunting.
I love it when you love my work, but please, if you want to use it in any other medium, ask my permission first.

Yes, they're adorable looking but not even close to house cats when you take a good look at them
I like learning about the animals I photograph myself, and I've learned a lot of people enjoy learning about them with me
These Servals especially are amazing to watch - they well smooch each other and next thing, get involved in a big fight!
