Caracal by Sarahharas07 Caracal by Sarahharas07
Pastel pencils on Mi Teintes,
Size A4
A new experiment, I haven't used pastels pencils before and I have a limited number of
colours, but enough for this Caracal with her cute ears.

Caracal,caracal, Caracal, also known as desert lynx.
The Caracal is widely distributed across Africa, central Asia and southwest Asia into India.
A male caracal can weigh 8 to 20 kg (18 to 44 lb), females are smaller and weigh
about 7 to 16 kg (15 to 35 lb)

The tufts on the Caracal's ears help to pinpoint prey by directing sound waves into the cat's ears. This is achieved by 20 different muscles that control the ear's movement.
The tufts can be up to 10 cm (4 inch) long
