The Cutest Animals You've Never Heard Of

The Carcal

Talk about a cool cat. Caracals get mad style points for their their gorgeous tufted ears, which are like inbuilt plumed helmets. Their unique beauty was recognized early on by the ancient Egyptians, who made many statues and paintings honoring the animals, and even mummified them for posterity. But again, the caracal's prey would have to disagree that these cats are adorable. Their jumps are legendary—they are basically the Steve Nashes of the feline world. Don't believe us? Watch this. YEAH. GOOD LUCK WITH THAT, BIRD.
