Anatomy: The African Wild Cat has powerful jaws and long, pointed canine teeth. It has sharp, retractable claws, big ears, a long tail, and a striped coat that ranges from yellowish gray to light tan, with a white throat and underbelly. The eyes have round pupils. These graceful cats are from 20 to 30 inches (50-75 cm) long (plus a tail that is half as long as the body). They weigh from 10 to 25 pounds (4.5-11 kg).
Diet: African Wild Cats are carnivores (meat-eaters). These fast, solitary hunters eat small to medium-sized mammals, birds, reptiles, frogs, invertebrates, and eggs.
