It was a hot year. After a heavy rain, the African bull frogs came out to mate. This Caracal (Caracal caracal) captured one. Standing on her back hinds the caracal decided not to kill it with her claws and teeth but to impale it on the dried grass blades that grew from the ground. Like many cats, they like to play with their food. Caracal’s are shy big cats found over parts of Africa, the Middle East and Asia.
