“Serval”
Acrylic on Canvas, Framed Original

Beth Bale has painted this inquisitive “Serval” lazing in the grass.  He lives at the Carolina Tiger Rescue in Pittsboro.  He says, “No I am not a tiger or a leopard or a bobcat.  Get to know me, I am a serval.”  
 
Their long legs make servals one of the tallest of wild cats and they are strong yet slender. Serval’s favorite food is a rodent eaten whole.  Hunting at night, they also eat frogs, hares and other small animals. 
 
The serval is extremely intelligent, and demonstrates remarkable problem-solving ability making it notorious for getting into mischief, as well as easily outwitting its prey, and eluding other predators.
 
If ridding the area of rodents and being mischevious isn’t enough to endear the serval, they also know how to purr!  Can’t you just hear him now!
